    Amm.. In my revision book, it says partial internal reflection occurs when incident angle is less than or equal to the critical angle. I have nelson thornes and it is for AQA exam board only.
    Oh... I got the same textbook so had a look and yeah, you were right.

    I haven't seen any questions in past papers on that though...

    Does anyone have a list of all the experiments they could potentially ask us about?

    so you would only get partial reflection if the angle of incidence is exactly equal to the critical angle?

    what if the ray is refracted through, do you still get a bit of reflection?
    Yes, but not much (second question)

    No, you get partial internal reflection when the incident angle is less than or equal to the critical angle. And you get total internal reflection when the incident angle is bigger than the critical angle. Is that clear?

    Predictions?


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    Yes of course! Everything will come up (I predict). So, you will have to revise everything.

    Does anyone have a model answer for any of the 6 markers on waves ie slits, diffraction gratings or stationary? As soon as I see a question asking me to explain what happens my head goes blank!

    What is the question? I can only see the diagram and it is up-side-down.

    Sorry to both you again On jan 13 paper on 2bi, how do you work out the weight component?

    sorry it's show the component of the weight along the slope is 0.06

    You wanna try to draw a triangle, with the weight as the hypotenuse, then you should be able to work out the angle and thus, the component parallel and perpendicular to the plane.

    Could you post a diagram with the question you need help with? Thanks.
