More About Light & Waves I Light as a wave : As we learned before, light is an electromagnetic wave; at each point ~ E will produce ~ B and ~ B will produce ~ E . I Huygens’ Principle : All points on a wavefront serve as a point source of spherical secondary wavelets. After a time t , the new position of the wave front will be that of a surface tangent to these secondary wavelets. Loading huygen1.mpg Loading huygen2.mpg
The Law of Refraction Main idea: each point is considered a source. In the interface between two materials (e.g. air and glass), we have: sin θ 1 = λ 1 λ 2 = v 1 v 2 = n 2 n 1 If n 1 = 1 in air, v 1 = c : n = c v Loading refraction3.mpg
