Refraction

If we shine a ray of light at an angle,


between 2 different media, the ray
does NOT carry on in a
straight line as we
might expect.
Instead it
bends inwards.
This is called refraction

When light hits an air-glass


boundary, there are three things
that happen to it:
Some light is reflected;
Some light is absorbed;
Most of the light is
transmitted.
