Description:

This page is a Java applet relating to light refraction. Users view simulated wave refractions as they control incident angle and incident wavelength. The applet offers a choice of six media ranging from a vacuum (1.00 on the refractive index) to a diamond (2.42 on the refractive index). Its ease of use makes it an appropriate choice for users with little or no background in physics.
