      The Speed of Light
        You may have learned that the speed of light is constant (about 30 000 000 metres per second). In actual fact it is only constant if it is travelling through a medium (material - eg. air) of constant density. When light encounters an increase in density, it slows down. When light encounters a decrease in density it speeds up. These changes in speed correspond to changes in direction so changes in density cause the path of light to bend. See below.
        Air to Water
        When light travels from air to water it slows down because water is more dense than air is. When light slows down its path bends towards the normal line so that the angle of incidence ( i ) is greater than the angle of refraction ( r i r . Eg.
        As light travels from air to water it is
        bent towards the normal line, i.e. the
        angle of incidence is greater than the
        angle of refraction. This also occurs in the formation of a rainbow. The normal line it perpendicualr to the tangent at the point where the light hits the surface of the raindrop.

83. Note-A-Rific: Snell's Law
In the year 1600 a Dutch mathematician named willebrord snell was playing aroundwith numbers and figured out a formula that fit what everyone was measuring.
Note-A- Rific : Snell’s Law
Have you ever looked at someone standing in the shallow end of a swimming pool and thought that they looked really short? As soon as they stepped out they looked taller. Something must be happening to the way that light is traveling to your eyes. Your brain and eyes always assume that the light is traveling to your eyes in a straight line… which is not always the case! This does not mean that light travels in curved lines, but the direction that a beam of light is traveling can be changed. What is really happening is refraction , the bending of waves as they pass from one medium to another. In the swimming pool example, the light traveling through the water from the person’s feet must be bending and moving in another direction when it enters the air … this makes their feet appear to be in a different spot making the person look shorter. Since Ptolemy’s time (about 100AD) people knew about refraction, but they didn’t know why it happened, or how to predict and calculate it. In the year 1600 a Dutch mathematician named Willebrord Snell was playing around with numbers and figured out a formula that fit what everyone was measuring.

Schooling: Leiden, M.A.; Paris
He was the son of a well-to-do father who was himself a considerable scholar and professor of mathematics at the University of Leiden. In 1603 his father was connected with the court of the Landgraf Maurice of Hesse.
He studied law at the University of Leiden, but became interested in mathematics at an early age. I assume a B.A.
Already in 1600 he was allowed to offer lectures on mathematics at Leiden on special days.
1602- Feb. 03, studied law in Paris. I am assuming that this as at the university.
1608, received an M.A. from Leiden.

Snell's law
Snell's law is the simple formula used to calculate the refraction of light when travelling between two media of differing refractive index . Named for its discoverer, Dutch mathematician Willebrord van Roijen Snell ( In the diagram above, two media of refractive indices n (on the left) and n (on the right) meet at a surface or interface (vertical line). n n , and light has a slower phase velocity within the second medium. A light ray PO in the leftmost medium strikes the interface at the point O . From point O , we project a straight line at right angles to the line of the interface; this is known as the normal to the surface (horizontal line). The angle between the normal and the light ray PO is known as the angle of incidence The ray continues through the interface into the medium on the right; this is shown as the ray OQ . The angle with which is makes to the normal is known of as the angle of refraction Snell's law
n n
n and n . In other words, a ray perpendicular entering a medium perpendicular to the surface is never bent.

    snipe snipe, common name for a shore bird of the family Scolopacidae ( sandpiper family), native to the Old and New Worlds. The common, or Wilson's snipe ( Capella gallinago ), also called jacksnipe, is a game bird of marshes and meadows. It has an unusual courtship dance, circling and diving in the air. The mud snipe or woodcock ( Scolopax rusticola ) is a nocturnal woodland bird. The eastern dowitcher, Limnodromus griseus, also called the red-breasted, or robin, snipe, frequents mud flats and shores, as does the long-billed dowitcher of W North America and South America (rare on the Atlantic coast). The European common snipe, found also in Asia and Africa, is similar to the Wilson's snipe. Snipes are classified in the phylum Chordata , subphylum Vertebrata, class Aves, order Charadriiformes, family Scolopacidae.
