the angle made by path of the incident ray with the path of the refracted ray is the angle of deviation.

Dear Koushik,
the difference between the angle of incident ray and emer gent ray is angle of deviation.
the formula for it is A+D=i+e ...where A=angle of prism,D=deviation,i=incident ray angle,e=emergent ray angle.
Also in an inclined plane the deviation changes.
