This is a static picture. It is illustrative only.

When light travelling in one medium enters another obliquely and changes speed it changes direction. That is called refraction.

In this experiment you have light traveling in air and entering another substance. You can specify the angle of incidence and the experiment will return the angle of refraction (to the nearest degree).

Directions: Move the slider to adjust the angle of incidence
