Light enters a container of benzene at an angle of 43° to the normal; the refracted beam makes an angle of 27° with the normal. Calculate the index of refraction of benzene.
Step 1 of 2
Here we need to calculate the refractive index of benzene. The light rays enters a container of benzene at an angle to the normal, and the refracted ray makes an angle with the normal.
