Reflection and Refraction

SATPHY-4PLJFT

Light passes from air into two clear, transparent materials (materials 1 and 2) at the same angle.

Material 2 has a greater index of refraction than material 1.

What is true of the amount of light reflected from surface 2 compared to surface 1 and the amount of bending of light inside material 2 compared to material 1?

A
Reflection of Light from Surface 2 the same as the light reflected from surface 1
Bending of Light in Material 2 more bending than in material 1
B
Reflection of Light from Surface 2 more than the light reflected from surface 1
Bending of Light in Material 2 more bending than in material 1
C
Reflection of Light from Surface 2 the same as the light reflected from surface 1
Bending of Light in Material 2 less bending than in material 1
D
Reflection of Light from Surface 2 more than the light reflected from surface 1
Bending of Light in Material 2 less bending than in material 1
E
Reflection of Light from Surface 2 less than the light reflected from surface 1
Bending of Light in Material 2 more bending than in material 1
