in case of right angled isoceles prism if  a light is incident at the face AB ( prism is right angled at c) then it comes out parallel to the incident ray.....

Dear Nikhil

there are two cases

  1. refractive index for the prism and external medium is same
  2. deviation= 2 x incidence angle - prism angle,  for deviation to be zero incidence angle = prism angle/2

All the best

										But Deviation = 2i - angle of prism is only valid for some prisms.As when I = e angle of incidence = angle of emergence then deviation = (I+e)-angle of prism so deviation = 2i - angle of prism.Maybe when I = angle of prism/2 then I = e does not holds

										The only way Ray can pass through it undeviated if angle of incidence is zero i.e. incident Ray is perpendicular to the surface but In a prism the light Ray has to pass through two interface at an angle with each other.It can`t be perpendicular to both
