Reflection / transmission in real life

Reflection / transmission in real life

I'd like to know if ive interpreted the equations correctly.

It seems that the reflection from a dielectric is just based on the
difference in IOR (and the angle). Is this correct? So if i where to
make a "proper" material, it wouldn't have a "reflection amount"

How about transmission? I've seen one text mentioning a similar
equation for the transmissive component.

How does absorbtion fit into all this?
