Resource summary

Refraction
1 Refraction is the bending of light which occurs when it enters a different medium
2 Light travels at different speeds in different media e.g. it is slower in a glass and water than what it is inside a vaccum
3 Media in which light travels slower are aid to be optically dense
4 It is the changing of speed which causes light to refract
5 When light enters a more optically dense material it refracts towards the normal
6 When light exists a more optically dense material it refracts away from the normal
