Hi, Mathematically: The formula equating the critical angle to n (refractive index) is critical angle = sin-1(1 / n). http://www.usfacetersguild.org/articles/bob_keller/refractive_index/ *Please go to the above link to see the equation in a clearer formatted way and also read more on the fundamental concepts of Refractive Index and Critical Angle relations. Any clarifications needed? Don't hesitate to ask. Regards Landog-ga
