# Given the refractive index of water and glass is 4/3 and 3/2 respectively.Write the relation and find the value of refractive index of water with respect to glass and glass with respect to water.

Given nga =3/2

And nwa=4/3

Hence refractive index of glass with respect to water is:

ngw=nga/ nwa =  ( 3/2)/(4/3)=9/8

Now refractive index of water with respect to glass is :

nwg   = nwa/ nga =  (4/3)/(3/2)  = 8/9
