### What happens when a light moves from a material with a lower index of refraction to another material with a higher index of refraction?

The ray of light bends towards the normal.

### What is the bending of light rays as it passes from one material into another?

Index Of Refraction

### The speed of light in a vacuum is 1.5 times that of the speed of light in a given material what is the index of refraction for that material?

Also 1.5. That's how the index of refraction is defined.

### What is a property of a material that indicates how much it reduces the speed of light?

well kids, the answer is INDEX OF REFRACTION. (: science question on my homework

### How can the index of refraction for different substances be determined mathematically?

n(index of refraction) = c(speed of light in a vacuum)/v(speed of material in the sebstance)

true

2 (no units)

### What is the measures of how much a ray of light bends when it enters the material?

Index of refraction

### What is the measure of how much a ray of the light bends when it enters the material?

Index of refraction

### Ratio of the speed of light in a vacuum to the speed of light in a material?

The index of refraction.

### The bending of light as it moves from one material to another?

It's called refraction, and the amount of bending is determined by the index of refraction.

### What is a material's index of refraction?

It is the ratio between the speed of light in a vacuum, and the speed of light in the material. The angle at which light is refracted is related to the index of refraction, and can be calculated using Snell's Law.
