Solution

For a given angle of incidence, the extent of refraction of light is different in different media.

  •  When the refractive index of the second medium is greater than the refractive index of the first medium, the refracted ray bends more towards the normal.
  •  When the refractive index of the first medium is greater than the refractive index of the second medium, the refracted ray bends away from the normal.
Concept: Refractive Index
