Light of wavelength 6 picometres enters a glass slab of refractive index 1.5 .Calculate the speed of light in glass.(Can you please answer the question a little bit early, I have a test tomorrow)

Expert Answer:

Refrective index μ = speed of light in vaccume/speed of light in medium
 
μ = c/v
 
v = c/μ
 
  = 3 x 108 / 1.5
 
  = 2 x 108 m/s
 
Hence, speed of light in glass = 2 x 108 m/s
