REFRACTION OF LIGHT - STRAW IN GLASS OF WATER (2 of 2)<br />
Refraction When Straw Enters Water at an Angle<br />
Light rays passing from one medium to another are refracted at the boundary between the two media. However when the object is viewed as a perpendicular to the boundary point, in this case from above, no refraction is observable.
