...The law in question is the assertion that, when a ray of light passes from one medium to another, the **ratio of the sine of the angle of incidence to the sine of the angle of refraction is** a constant characteristic of the pair of media. The law was discovered experimentally by Harriott,... | |

...Another example is Snell's Law: "A ray of light, incident at a surface separating two media, is bent. The **ratio of the sine of the angle of incidence to the sine of the angle of refraction is** a constant for two given media." As stated, the law is a theorem in the theory of optics that can be... | |
