Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am learning about refraction and the million ways in which Snell's Law is presented to me is making me confused...

So, I understand that:

sin i / sin r, will give me the ratio of speeds c_{i}/c_{r}and λ_{i}/λ_{r}

However, I can't understand this form of:

n_{1}sin i = n_{2}sin r

How does it drop out?

Thanks,

Peter G.
