    that the light beam makes with the surface of the reflective medium. Since the light is traveling at a constant speed the minimum distance also corresponds to the minimum time. So we see that the minimum time proposition explains the law of the reflection of light. We can now explore the more complicated scenario of light traveling from one medium to another. Below is a diagram showing the path that the light travels. Here we know that the light is traveling from the initial point to the

    as a direct result of the experience. Jasper (2006) describes reflection as the ‘conscious exploration of an event to discover more about it and learn from it’.

    Snell's law (also known as the Snell–Descartes law and the law of refraction) is a formula used to describe the relationship between the angles of incidence and refraction, when referring to light or other waves passing through a boundary between two different isotropic media, such as water, glass and air. In optics, the law is used in ray tracing to compute the angles of incidence or refraction, and in experimental optics and gemology to find the refractive index of a material. The law is also
