Q. Light enters at an angle of incidence in a transparent rod of refractive index n. For what value of the refractive index of the material of the rod the light once entered into it will not leave it through its lateral face whatsoever be the value of angle of incidence?

In This post you will get answer of Q.
Light enters at an angle of incidence in a transparent rod of refractive index n. For what value of the refractive index of the material of the rod the light once entered into it will not leave it through its lateral face whatsoever be the value of angle of incidence?

Solution:

$n> frac{sin r}{sin i}$

i.e ,$ n>frac{sin 90 ^circ }{ sin 45^circ} Rightarrow n> sqrt 2 $
