the wavefronts with the instantaneous surfaces where the wave is at its maximum.
perpendicular to the
\u2022Ray approximation: In the ray
approximation, we assume that a
wave moving through a medium
travels in a straight line in the direction
Every point of a wave front may be considered the source of secondary
wavelets that spread out in all directions with a speed equal to the speed
of propagation of the wave.
\u2022 After the wavelets have moved
a distance s\u2206t, a new plane
BB\u2019 can be drawn tangent to
derived from Huygen\u2019s
\u2022 From triangles AA\u2019C and ACB,
all the ratios in the law of
refraction can be found:
\u2013Specular reflection: Reflection of light from a
smoothsurface, where the reflected rays are
all parallelto each other.
\u2013Diffuse reflection: Reflection from any rough
surface, where the reflected rays travel in
