16.6 Refraction in Prisms, Prism Formula

An incident ray into a glass prism is deviated due to refraction which occurs twice, once at the boundary separating air-glass and next at the boundary separating glass-air as shown in figure (i).

The passage of light incident from air into a glass prism is deviated due to refraction occurring twice, once at the boundary separating air-class and next at the boundary separating glass-air as shown in figure 17.


The geometry of prism imposes relations between i.e., A, S and r1, r2, A as follows :
