A. angle of incidence
B. Snell's Law
C. angle of refraction
D. refractive index

2 Answer

  • Answer:D.Refractive Indez

    Explanation:

    It is usually expressed the other way: the ratio of the speed of light in a vacuum to the speed of light in a medium. In that case, it is called the "index of refraction".

  • You're going for "refractive index", but you've got the ratio flipped over.
