|What is it called when a wave bends when it crosses the boundary between two media?
|Do waves travel faster in deep or shallow water?
|What represents the postitions of different waves?
|When do sound refractions occur?
|uneven winds and changes in temperature
|Does sound travel faster in warm or cold air?
|Changes in speed of light, as it passes from one medium to another, or variations in the temperature and densities of the same medium cause what?
|does light travel faster in air or water?
|Becuase light slows down when it enters water, the wave bends ________ the normal.
|a distorted image caused by refraction of light in Earth's atmosphere

|What happends when the angle of incidence is larger than the critical angle?
|total interbal reflection
|What is the critical angle?
|the angle of incidence at which the light is reflected at an angle of 90 degrees
|when there is a critical angle the intensity of the emerging beam is...?
|optical fibers are sometimes called
|optical fibers use ______ to disperse light
|a series of total internal reflections
