1.3 ANALYSING REFRACTION OF WAVESa) Refraction of water waves,b) Refraction of light waves,c) Refraction of sound waves.Introduction :
1. Refraction of waves ;- “ When a wave traveling in one medium crosses the boundary into amedium where its velocity is different, the transmitted wave may move ina different direction than the incident wave.”2. Effect of refraction of waves ;
a) Refraction of water waves :
1.“ when a water wave travelling from deep area to shallow area.”
v, (velocity) will change after refraction.f, (frequency) same before and after refraction.
, (wavelength) will change after refraction.
