i understand that when a ray of light enters a non-hypotenuse side of a right-angle prism at the perpendicular angle (90*) , it is reflected off the interior of the hypotenuse at a 90* angle, exiting out the other non-hypotenuse side(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

how would light travel through a right angle prism if: the light entered a non-hypotenuse side of the prism at a non-perpendicular angle??

thanks!
