1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
what is the speed of light through water? (the index of refraction is 1.333) 2. Relevant equations speed of light/speed of light in X = index of refraction of X 3. The attempt at a solution 3x10^8/x = 1.333 x= 2.25 x 10^8 just looking for a double check to make sure I did this right. thanks,
