Optics and refraction: media density [ESL]

Learning Material  |  Interactive Lesson  |  RAR

Published on 2016 August 24th

Look at light rays travelling through air, glass and water. Notice how light bends as it passes from one substance to another. Explore how the angle of refraction is affected by the nature of the substances. This learning object is one in a series of three objects.

Students identify that light rays change direction when they pass from one medium to another.
Students form a hypothesis about how light rays will behave when passing from one medium to another, and test their prediction to see if it is correct.
