A ray of light falls normally on a face of a glass slab. What are the values of values of angle i and angle r.

B) Light enters from air to diamond which has refractive index of 2.52.
Calculate the speed of light in diamond


A) Both i, r are equal to zero, i=r=0. B)  \frac{v_{1}}{v_{2}} = n_{21}. Speed of light in diamond = speed in vacuum/refractive index. V=1.19× 10^{8} .

       when the ray falls normally on a surface, angle of incidence is 0. 
   since μ₁ Sin i = μ₂ sin r    =>  r is also zero.  The ray goes straight in to the glass medium and emerges out of glass slab at the other surface also at  i = 0 and r = 0. 

           Refractive Index is defined as the ratio of speed of light in vacuum divided by speed of light in the medium.  It is also calculated by the formula: Sin i / Sin r.

             μ = 2.52 = 3 * 10⁸ m /sec / v

               v = 3 * 10⁸ / 2.52 = 1.19 * 10⁸ meters / sec
