Why do light ray bend toward the normal when it passes air into water?

What happens to light when it passes from air into water?

When a ray of light passes from air to water, it slows down and the ray of light bends towards the normal to its plane of entry. This is called refraction, the ray of light is refracted. The refractive index of air is less than that of water.


Why cant you see a ray of light?

You can. without rays of light you could not see


Why do objects look distorted under water?

A ray of light will change direction when going out of water, into the air. This is called "Refraction".A ray of light will change direction when going out of water, into the air.

How do you explain that the pencil appears broken in the glass of water?

A ray of light changes direction when it gets out of the water, and into the air. This is called "refraction".A ray of light changes direction when it gets out of the water, and into the air.

What occurs as a ray of light passes from air into water?

The ray must decrease in speed.


How can you see the UV light in laminar air flow otherwise usually you cant see the uv ray?

UV bulbs usually have a coating on the inside that glows when the light is on, providing indication in the visible light part of the spectrum.


What is the ray diagram of light refraction in air and glass?

A prism


A ray of light traveling from air to water will bend which direction?

The ray will bend towards the normal.


How do you calculate refractive index?

Refractive index of a medium = speed of light in air / speed of light in medium If a ray of light passes from air into that medium then the refractive index (R.I) can be given by: R.I = sin(angle in air) / sin(angle in medium) Angle in air is the angle between the ray of light and the normal in air.


What happened to the ray of light when it entered the water?

if the ray of light enters the water from air,refraction takes place and the ray of light will bend towards the normal due to higher optical density.


What happens when a ray of light passes from glass to air?

As the ray traverses from glass into air its speed increases. So it bends away from the normal.
