What is the resultant here?
Light travels from medium X into medium Y. Medium Y has a higher index of refraction. Consider each statement below: (i) The light travels faster in X. (II) The light will bend towards the normal. (III) The light will speed up. (IV) The light will bend away from the normal.
A. (II) B. (III) and (IV) C. (i) D. (i) and (II) E. (II), (III), and (IV)
The second medium has a higher index of refraction, meaning that light will be faster in the second medium. Also, since its slower (x) into the faster medium (y), the light ray should be refracted away from normal. The answer should be B. (III) and (IV).
