Problem 14RQ

What is the cause of refraction?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 14RQ Step 1 of 2: Refraction is a phenomenon in which , light bends at the boundary when it passes from one medium to another. The transmission of light across the boundary between two medium is accompanied by a change in both the speed and wavelength of the wave. The light wave not only changes directions at the boundary, it also speeds up or slows down and transforms into a wave with a larger or a shorter wavelength.
