Experiment to Measure the Angle of Deviation of a Prism

The angle of deviation through a triangular prism is defined as the angle between the incident ray and the emerging ray (angle δ). It can be shown that when theangle of incidence i is equal to the angle of refraction r’ for the emerging ray, theangle of deviation is at a minimum.
