Question

Why does a ray of light bend when it travels from one medium to another ?


Solution

The refraction of light( bendingof light ray) depends upon the change in speed of light. If speed of light changes so it will bend when travelling from one medium to another. Llike when light enters into water the light ray bent because its speed changes and it slows down.
