What is Brewster's Law? The equation.
$\theta_B=\arctan(\frac{n_2}{n_1})$

Light hits a white shirt a man is wearing. What happens to the light?

### Re: Crave the Wave B

total reflection?
total (internal) reflection when the angle of reflection is >90 degrees and the beam is reflected back inside when the outer index of refraction is less than the incident one? I don't it would have much to do with the color of the shirt

You're right, but I was looking for...
