Here is refraction

Refraction is the bending of light as it passes from one substance to another

Here is reflection

Reflection occurs when light changes direction as a result of "bouncing off" a surface,

i think the definitive difference is a refraction is a bend in the light where a reflection is a redirection of it

Please let me know the basic difference between reflection and refraction for class X Physics.

Hi,
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
goodluck!

### What is the differance between a class 2 safety vest & a class 3 safety vest & is there a class 1

Class 1 safety vests are for workers in low impact areas, where traffic flow does not exceed 25 mph and where personnel are working a good distance away from it. Parking service attendants, delivery vehicle drivers, and sidewalk or roadside maintenance workers are examples of jobs who would qualify for a class 1 safety vest. These vests should have a mandatory minimum of 155 square inches of reflective tape. Dimensions of the reflective tape can be either 6.46 linear feet of 2 inch tape or 9.39 linear feet of 1 3/8 inch tape. The reflective stripes should be around the middle in a 360? stripe and above each shoulder. Vests should be either a safety yellow or safety orange color.
Workers who are involved in jobs where there is heavier traffic are required to wear a Class 2 vest. Jobs that require workers to work in areas where there is poor visibility due to weather will also need a more reflective Class 2 safety vest. Class 2 vests will have a minimum of 201 square inches of reflective tape that is 2 inches in diameter. Dimensions of the reflective tape can be 8.373 linear feet of 2-inch tape or 12.2 linear feet of 1 3/3 inch tape. Examples of jobs that require Class 2 vests are airport baggage handlers and ground crew, forestry workers, high-volume parking or toll-gate personnel and law enforcement personnel. Reflective stripes will be over the shoulders and round the middle in either one or two 360? horizontal stripes.
Jobs that require workers to be the most visible are ones that put personnel in close contact with heavy traffic. High risk jobs include accident site investigators, emergency responders, railway workers, utility workers, and survey and flagging crews. These workers will often be close to traffic exceeding 50 miles an hour, so it is important for them to be as visible as possible. Class 3 safety vests and garments must have a minimum of 310 square inches of reflective tape that is 12.92 linear feet and 2-inches thick. Class 3 garments also provide more coverage to the arms and legs than do class 1 and class 2 safety vests.

### What does reflect mean

The direction of light can be changed in 2 ways. One way is refraction which is usually done by a lens (eyeglasses do this). The other is reflection, most often done by a mirror. Telescopes are almost always based on reflection and/or refraction designs. A reflective telescope has at least one curved mirror, often 2 curved mirrors which focus light by reflecting a larger area of natural light on a smaller spot.

### Fog lamps shut off when i put brights off?

check with the service dealer as it may be a legal requirement where you are that you cannot run both lights at the same time . If you can run the main beams then there is no reason to use the fog lights as they serve no useful purpose.. Fog lights a re situated down low and are designed to shine under the fog ( fog is always about 12 " from the ground) and reflect the road markers so that you can see where the road goes and the light is not refracted back as a white sheet in the fog as your main lights do.

Low or poor signal is mainly caused by the following major factors:

Going Around Physical Obstructions
Wireless networks are also susceptible to obstructions that may lead to low signal. Often, the signal gets reflected, refracted or absorbed by the obstruction.

Common obstructions are:

• Cabinets
• Mirrors
• Glasses
• Metal objects
• Thick walls and ceilings

If you have any of these objects between your wireless adapter and access point, consider relocating your access point somewhere high to get around the obstruction.

### I want to view construction diagram or a diagram that can explain Reflex mirrir lens for digital slr camera.

Same principle as a reflex telescope- might Wikipedia Schmidt-cassegrain OR reflex telescope for more info. Long glass lenses need a lot of correction for fact that different wavelengths refract at different angles, while those same beams of light bend the same when reflected.

### Opengl code

OpenGL doesn't handle photonics or any other low-level physics - you'll either need a raytracer, such as POVRAY or Blender, or you'll have to write the physics yourself, to emulate light rays of varying colours (I recommend using a HSL colour space for your physics, only translating to RGB when rendering the frame).
The refraction of a ray at the interface of the prism and the "air" can be calculated using Index of Refraction, correction factor to account for different refraction dependent on frequency (Hue) and a random number generator to emulate slight scattering.
