is the emergent and incident ray angle equal in all triangular prism as well as the 2 angle of refraction all times or not necessarily at all? can someone help me aid with this confusion of mine.

Note: it was using the olabs simulation by amrita university which has very much inaccuracy of its protractor in the simulation

Oh i get it sir. what about the reason that at some angle of incidence, the incident ray will not be refracted by the prism and will just pass through the prism in a straight line? Like the angle of incidence is not basically set to zero but still no refaction of light happens how is this so?
