Homework Statement
A light ray in air strikes the rightangle prism shown in the figure (Figure 1) (∠B=28.0∘). This ray consists of two different wavelengths. When it emerges at face AB, it has been split into two different rays that diverge from each other by 8.50∘ .
Find the index of refraction of the prism for each of the two wavelengths.
Enter your answers in ascending order separated by a comma.
Homework Equations
n^{a}sinΘ_{a}=n_{b}sinΘ_{b}
The Attempt at a Solution
From the Normal I determined that the angles for n_{1} and n_{2} are 74 and 82.5. However I am running into the issue of where to go from here Also the angle for the incident angle is 62.
I did not know what the index is for the Right angle prism I used 1.5 for glass for it orginally and out with the values 1.38 (74)and 1.34 (82.5). however those were not the correct values.
I do not know where to go from here
thank you in advance
