Refraction of Light Through Perspex Glass

User Description:
Refraction is when the light travels at different velocity it causes the bending of light, when it travels through one medium, this is caused by the differences in index of refraction.

Sample Text:
Background knowledge: Refraction is when the light traves at different velocity it causes the bending of light, when it travels through one medium, this is caused by the differences in index of refraction. Light refracts when it travels at an angle with the optical density, which changes the speed. If it travels into more optimal dense which makes it bend towards the normal whereas when light travels into less optimal dense which makes it bend away from normal. The diagram in (Figure 1) has a visual representation of the practical. The amount of bending of light depends on two things; change in speed through the refractive index of an object and the angle of the incident ray. The equation below is Snell’s Law, which is used to identify the refractive index Hypothesis: Variables: Medium Refractive index Vacuum n= 1 Air n=1.00029 When the incident ray travels through the P...
