Refraction of Light

  • Refraction: Bending or change in the direction of light as it passes from one medium to another
  • Refraction of light occurs because of change in the speed of light due to a change in the medium. 
  • When light enters an optically denser medium from an optically rarer medium, the speed of light slows down and light bends towards the normal. 
  • The opposite happens when light enters an optically rarer medium from an optically denser medium.
  • Effect on various characteristics of light on reflection and refraction:
