We investigate transmission and reflection of Bose-Einstein condensate excitations in the low-energy limit across a potential barrier separating two condensates with different densities. Bogoliubov excitation in the low-energy limit has an incident angle where perfect transmission occurs. This condition corresponds to the Brewster's law for the electromagnetic wave. There also exists the total internal reflection of the Bogoliubov excitation in the low-energy limit. In the case of the normal incidence, our result in the low-energy limit is consistent with a result for weakly interacting one-dimensional Bose gases treated as Tomonaga-Luttinger liquids.
