Light Refraction and Wavelength / Frequency

  1. Apr 18, 2004 #1
    Another question in the exam today was "What property of light changes when light moves between different mediums, its wavelength of frequency?". I had to flip a coin on this one (like everyone else, this was not taught in class) and went with frequency.

    Well... you lost... :frown:

    Sorry, Chen, but frequency is maintained from one medium to the next.
