1.) What do you understand by refraction?

Ans- when light passes from one optical medium to another it bends at the line of contact of the two medium such bending of light rays is called refraction of light.

Refraction is seen in light. For refraction of light medium is necessary.

2.) When the light ray enters water medium through glass medium ,where will it defect- towards normal or away from the normal?

Ans-  when the light ray enters water medium through glass medium it will defect towards normal

3.) What do you understand by refractive index of a medium?

Ans-refractive index is the refraction by any medium is measured by its deviation in terms of refractive index. Refractive index is the unit to express the optical density of a medium. When refractive indices is more than 1, then the light ray is moving from rarer medium to a denser medium. It shifts towards the normal ,When the refractive index is less than 1 then the light is moving from denser to rarer medium and it deviates away from normal . all this happed in case of refractive index of medium.

4.) What is long sightedness? How can it be rectified ? explain with  diagram

Ans- Long sightedness is the type of eye defect in which the focal length of the eye increases due to this the image of the nearly objects us formed beyond the retina this is known as long sightedness. This defect can be rectified by using an eye glasses with convex lens. The lens turn the rays in such a way that the rays focus properly on the retina.
