(Original post by Soul Wavel3ngth)can pls explain how to finder the critical angle even though you only know the RI of one of the materials?

Total internal reflection takes place when the angle of incidence is greater than the critical angle.
What you have to do is calculate the critical angle, use your answer from 2b to get the angle of incidence, and compare them to prove that the statement in 2c is true.
