A ray of light travelling in air enters obliquely into water. Does the light ray bend towards the normal or away from the normal? Why?

Q. A ray of light travelling in air enters obliquely into water. Does the light ray bend towards the normal or away from the normal? Why?

 

Answer:-

The light ray bends towards the normal as it travels from a rarer medium of air to a denser medium of water, under goes refraction. Refraction is due to change in the speed of light as it enters from one transparent medium to another. The speed of light increases in rarer medium and decreases in denser medium
