An additional explaining: light speed is constant (c=3e8, aprox.), but propagation speed is not constant. It depends on the medium (being exact, it depends on the propagation constant, ß, of the medium) and can be calculated using one of the following equations:
For optical mediums a simpler expression is given using material’s effective refraction index (ñ), but I cannot remember the expression now O:-)
Do you remember when you were a child and enjoyed wraping plastic bubbles? Now you can do it in your computer, here’s the virtual bubblewrapper. As they say, this is a page to waste vital lifetime. But don’t pass by
