With respect to air, the refractive indices of water and benzene
are 1.33 and 1.50 respectively. Calculate the refractive index of
benzene with respect to water.



This Is a Certified Answer

Certified answers contain reliable, trustworthy information vouched for by a hand-picked team of experts. Brainly has millions of high quality answers, all of them carefully moderated by our most trusted community members, but certified answers are the finest of the finest.
We know that:
\mu_{w}=refractive\ index\ of\ water\\\\\mu_{b}=refractive\ index\ of\ benzene\\\\\mu_{bw}=refractive\ index\ of\ benzene\ wrt\ water\\=\frac{\mu_b}{\mu_w}=\frac{1.50}{1.33}=1.128

Thus th refractive index becomes less wrt to another medium other than air.
