Refraction Light moving in a material is slowed by interactions with molecules/electrons If it hits at a funny angle, it bends (like a car hitting a wall at an angle) Blue light interacts more strongly, therefore bends more QuickTimeª and a decompressor are needed to see this picture.

Some physics culture: The Higgs Field The Higgs boson has been called “the God particle” Why: the “Higgs field” is the reason particles have mass If something is moving at less than speed of light, it must have mass Light acts like it has mass when it goes through material Particles have masses, so they must be moving through something with which they are interacting! (a field full of a bunch of Higgs bosons) QuickTimeª and a decompressor are needed to see this picture. QuickTimeª and a decompressor are needed to see this picture.
