LIGHT-REFLECTION AND REFRACTION(Please hurry!)

Expert Answer:

wavelength = 590 nm ; speed of light in air c = 3 x 108 m / s

since speed = frequency x wavlength

frequency = 3 x 108 / 590 x 10-9 = 3 x 1016 / 59  Hz

n = 3/2

n = c / v

v = c / n = 3 x 2 x108/ 3 = 2 x 108 m / s

since speed = frequency x wavlength

wavelength = speed / frequency = 2 x 108 x 59 / 3 x 1016 = (118 / 3) x 10-8 = (1180 / 3) nm
