Refraction

Refraction

Refraction Fact #1: As light goes from one medium to another, the velocity CHANGES!

Refraction Fact #2: As light goes from one medium to another, the path CHANGES!

Slide 4

Refraction  Going from Air to Water

Refraction Going from Air to Water

If a light ray goes from a LOW refractive Index (FAST MEDIUM) to a HIGH refractive index (SLOW MEDIUM), its speed DECREASES and the angle BENDS TOWARDS the normal

Slide 5

Refraction  Going from Water into Air

Refraction Going from Water into Air

If you are going from a HIGH refractive index to a LOW refractive index, your speed INCREASES and the angle BENDS AWAY the normal

Slide 6

There is one exception

There is one exception

That is when light hits head-on, perpendicular to the boundary. The light does not bend but its speed still changes.

Slide 7

Total internal reflection

Total internal reflection

happens when the angle between the light ray and the normal is greater than the critical angle.

The critical angle is formed when the light ray travels along the boundary between the two substances.

Optical fibres use multiple total

internal reflections to transmit light.

Copy the diagrams into your workbook.

Draw a normal wherever the light rays enter a new substance.

Demonstrate what will happen to the rays as they enter and exit from the substances by continuing the ray through the shape and out the other side.

Why does it look bent away from normal and not towards??

Why does it look bent away from normal and not towards??

Light from the lower part of the ruler is travelling into a region of lower optical density (air), and so has been bent away from the normal.

The image in the water is actually an illusionan image our brain constructs based on where light from the lower part of the ruler appears to come from.

It assumes that the light travelled in a perfectly straight line, even though it didnt.
