Total Internal Reflection is based on reflection.
Total internal reflection is based on the following two conditions:
- The angle of incidence must be greater than the critical angle.
- The light ray must first travel through a denser medium and then to a less dense medium.
Following are the examples of total internal reflection:
- The formation of mirage is an example of total internal reflection.
- Underwater reflection of fishes.
Prism, optical fibres, and binoculars are the applications of total internal reflection.
