Optical Refraction of Light at an Air-Glass Boundary
Hello, My question is simple, please look at the attached images and explain why the geometrical interpretation for the refraction of a light wavefront is wrong, and if so, why. And how else can you explain refraction from a physical perspective?
I would greatly appreciate any constructive feedback.
