How does refractive index of a substance is affected by optical density?
Asked by jgprmr | 17th Jun, 2017, 09:18: PM
Optical density is the measure of the degree to which a medium refracts light. Hence, if a material is optically denser then it will refract more light and will have a higher refractive index. Consequently, if a medium has lower optical density then it will refract less and will have smaller refractive index.
