How to derive the formula : d = t sin θ [ 1 - (n cosθ / n' cosθ)]

    • Thread Starter

    Hey guys!

    Could someone please tell me how to derive this formula by using Wave Phenomenon

    d = t sin θ [ 1 - (n cosθ / n' cosθ)]
    I think some of it is derived using Brewster's Principle and the Refractive Index but I cannot tell how?
