🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Lipton's class at PURDUE.

Solution: Consider a spherical rain drop in the air. A laser beam is directed at the rain drop from the left and slightly above the central axis (see figures). Which of the following diagrams best indicates the trajectory of the light? (Note, the dotted lines cross in the center of each drop, and therefore indicate the normal to the surface.)
