Solution

  1. The phenomenon of a change in the direction of the propagation of light when it passes obliquely from one transparent medium to another is called refraction of light.
  2. e.g. The coin disappears in a vessel as it is seen from a specific location. But as soon as the water is poured into the vessel to a certain level, the coin appears. This is because light rays coming from the coin emerge out of the water and change their direction due to the refraction of light.
