IN THIS EXPERIMENT YOU WILL…

Observe the medium of light Light is electromagnetic radiation within a certain portion of the electromagnetic spectrum. through a prismIn optics, a prism is a transparent optical element with flat, polished surfaces that refract light.  Light can only be observed when light moves from a  denser The density, or more precisely, the volumetric mass density, of a substance is its mass per unit volume. to a less dense optical medium An optical medium is material through which electromagnetic waves propagate. It is the angle of incidence An incident wave is a current or voltage wave that travels through a transmission line from the generating source towards the load. It becomes incident when it arrives at a discontinuity or another medium with different propagation characteristics. for which the  refracted ray A refracted ray is transmitted into the second medium and travels in a different direction than the incident ray. The angle that the incident, reflected, and refracted rays make with the surface normal are called the angles of incidence, qi , reflection, qr, and refraction, qt, respectively just disappears along the surface of the incident medium.
