Question

Light rays undergo ______ as they pass from air to water.


  1. Refraction

  2. Lateral inversion

  3. Diffused reflection

  4. Reflection


Solution

The correct option is A

Refraction


Refraction is the bending of light as it passes from one medium to another. The bending is caused by the differences in the optical density of air and water. As a result the refracted ray bends towards the normal at the point of incidence.
