A ray of light travels through a medium with an index of refraction [tex]n_{1}[/tex] and strikes an layered medium such that the index of refraction is [tex]n_{2}=ky+1[/tex] where [tex]y[/tex] is the depth of the medium and [tex]k[/tex] is a constant. If it hits at an angle of [tex]\theta_{1}[/tex] with respect to the normal, find the angle [tex]\theta_{2}[/tex] at which the light ray refracts as a function of time.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
