Ths animation shows how waves are reflected and refracted at the boundary between two media. The media can be changed and the speed of the animation also.
Page describing the behaviour of waves.
The site explains what happen to electromagnetic waves when it is transmitted and come in contact with a boundary.
Why does your reflection in a spoon appear upside down? Animation showing reflection from a convex mirror and spherical aberration.
Diagrams showing how sound is reflected and standing waves.
Explains law of reflection including interactive Java tutorials. Links to ideas of fluorescence, diffraction, polarization, scattering and virtual microscopy.
This applet models resonance and interference effects as waves pass through various layers. There are two modes: Electromagnetic, which models the transmission of light through multi-layer films, and ...
An in depth guide to light, optics and colour, covering wave particle duality, reflection, refraction, waves, diffraction, polarisation, birefringence, colour temperature, human perception and more.
A good explanation of reflection and refraction using ray diagrams.
A lesson on Total Internal Reflection which extends into the detailed mathematics.
