Does refraction take place in the atmosphere ? Give reason.
Asked by Topperlearning User | 21st Jul, 2017, 03:36: PM
Yes, refraction takes place in the different layers of atmosphere as the light travels from one layer to another. This happens due to the variable optical densities of the layers. The cooler air layer has higher optical density than the hot air.
