Refraction is the bending of a wave disturbance as it passes at an angle from one ___ into another.
medium
The ___ of light can change when light is refracted because the medium changes.
wavelength
Which is an example of refraction?
A fish appears closer to the surface of the water than it really is when observed from a riverbank.
When light passes at an angle to the normal from one material into another material in which its speed is lower,
it is bent toward the normal to the surface.
When light passes at an angle to the normal from one material into another material in which its speed is higher,
it is bent away from the normal to the surface.
When a light ray moves from air into glass, which has a higher index of refraction, its path is
bent toward the normal.
When a light ray passes from zircon (n= 1.923) into fluorite (n= 1.434) at an angle of 60°, its path is
bent away from the normal.
When a light ray passes from water (n= 1.333) into diamond (n= 2.419) at an angle of 45°, its path is

23°
A ray of light in air is incident on an air-to-glass boundary at an angle of exactly 30.0° with the normal. If the index of refraction of the glass is 1.65, what is the angle of the refracted ray within the glass with respect to the normal?
18.0°
