Refraction and total internal reflection

Applet in two parts - the first a fish's view from under water. In the second the position of the cursor is the source of a light ray. Its path from within the water to an observer appears.

Adiabatic Process

An adiabatic process is one in which no heat is gained or lost by the system. The first law of thermodynamics with Q=0 shows that all the change in internal energy is in the form of work done.
