Question and Answer

When monochromatic light is incident on a surface separating two media, the reflected and refracted light both have the same frequency as the incident frequency. Explain why?

Answer

The frequency of reflected ray and refracted light remains same as that of incident light, because frequency depends only on the source of light.
