Refraction of Light Package 1.0

Date Added: August 29, 2013  Visits: 237 


The Refraction of Light Package explores light traveling through media of difference indices of refraction. The user can change the beginning and end points of the light ray as well as the location of the light at the interface and note what light path minimizes light travel time and thereby develop Snell's Law.<br /><br />The Refraction and Least Time Model was created using the Easy Java Simulations (EJS) modeling tool. It is distributed as a readytorun (compiled) Java archive. Double clicking the ejs_bu_Refraction_Snell.jar file will run the program if Java is installed.
