In which direction does normal points?

Hello,

I am working upon one of the application in bullet .I have to find the collision between a ray and mesh shape and for this i analyzed that a normal being used to check the collision.
My question is whether this normal which is being calculated is towards penetration or resolution .i.e this normal is going towards the mesh shape or away from the mesh shape?
