1. What happens when a wave hits a boundary at an angle?

  • It slows down and maintains the same direction
  • It slows down and refracts (one half has hit the boundary first and slows down before the other half causing it to refract)
  • It speeds up and refracts ((one half has hit the boundary first and speeds up before the other half causing it to refract)
  • It speeds up and maintains the same direction
