Refraction

  • Speed of light in a vacuum is constant at 300,000,000 m/s. the speed of light slows down when it passes through a medium. the biggest the wavelength is, faster the light moves in a medium.

Refraction cont

  • Light changes direction when it changes mediums, changes in direction or change in angles is known as refraction.
