Laser Waterfall

In this video from the Encyclopedia of Physics Demonstrations, learn about total internal reflection. A laser beam is aligned so that the light passes through a water tank and out through an opening. As water flows out of the opening, observe how the laser beam remains trapped in the water stream because of total internal reflection. See how the light follows the path of the water even when the flow changes.
