  1. light enters through diamond of refractive index 2.42 .clalculate the speed of light in diamong if speed of light in air is 3 x 10(to the power 8)

hello mam/sir

Dear student,
Refractive index = velocity of light in vaccum/ speed of light in material or diamond
2.42 = 3 X 10^8/x
x = 3X10^8/2.42 = 1.23 X 10^8m/s
Hope this helps.
Thanking you
