of the glass when light passes through diamond. Light being an electromagnetic wave, has a variety of speeds and by entering glass a less dense substance than diamond would decrease the speed, and in conclusion making the angle of refraction smaller. 2)
3) Light rays bend towards the normal wen passing from a less dense substance to a more dense substance, because the wave varies in speed depending on the substance. When entering a less dense substance the wave begins to increase in speed. With that being said, with a continued speed on one side of the wave, alongside with the factor of speed increasing, the wave begins to bend towards the normal.
This being said.Conclusion: The purpose of the lab was to find the index of refraction of two materials. them being glass and acrylic. The glass density rages from 1.53 and the acrylic’s density is 1. thus light will travel slower through the glass. Thus proving his lab being successful.47. this explains why objects become distorted in water. In conclusion one discovered that glass has a higher index of refraction than acrylic. . By knowing this information one can infer that glass is a denser substance.48 -1. since one was able to grasp the concept that light will travel slower though a denser substance over an object with less density.
