Radiative transfer problem in an absorbing, scattering and homogeneous finite medium with Rayleigh scattering subjected to externally incident radiation is considered. The solution is evaluated when the case of Fresnel and diffuse reflections is present at the boundary. Galerkin approximation is introduced to calculate some functionals arising in radiative transfer problems such as reflection and transmission coefficients. Numerical results are reported and compared with the available published data which show very good agreement.
