Physics Problem: In the figure, a beam of light in the air encounters a transparent block with index of refraction n = 1.53...?

In the figure, a beam of light in the air encounters a transparent block with index of refraction n = 1.53. Some of the light is reflected and some is refracted.

What is θ1?

    The answer is 40 degrees.

    The angle of incidence is equal to the angle of reflection, si the angle between the vertical black line and purple line to the right if also 50 degrees. The 50 and Theta 1 angle for a 90-degree angle. 90-50 = 40.

    Theta 1 = 90-50 = 40 degrees.
