Physics - Refraction Basics
This lesson creates awareness about the phenomenon of refraction through real life examples. Animated ray diagrams provide an engaging mode of learning as the learner walks through laws of refraction, the concept of refractive index and Snell's law. The lesson also covers related concepts like critical angle, total internal refraction, and lateral and vertical shift due to refraction.
The examples on refraction of light enable you to calculate the vertical shift of an object when seen through different media.
This experiment enables you to observe the refraction of light as it propagates from a denser medium to rarer medium and vice versa. You can also observe the lateral shift of an incident light ray as it passes through a glass slab.
