(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A certain kind of glass has an index of refraction of 1.640 for blue light of wavelength 440 nm and an index of 1.605 for red light of wavelength 670 nm. If a beam containing these two colors is incident at an angle of 30.0° on a piece of this glass, what is the angle between the two beams inside the glass?

2. Relevant equations

wavelength in vacuum/ waveleangth = n

(Sin theta)n - (sin theta2) n2

3. The attempt at a solution

I first tried to find the new index of refractice (n) for each wavemength in air. Then i used that to find each angle.... then found the difference between them. any ideas where i went wrong?
