Any ray entering at an angle i shall be guided along AC if the angle the ray makes with the face AC ( ϕ ) is greater than the critical angle.

The smallest angle f shall be when i =π/2. If that is greater than the critical angle then all other angles of incidence shall be more than the critical angle.
