The index of Refraction for a diamond for red light, 656 nm, is 2.410, while that for blue light, 434 nm, is 2.450. Suppose white light is incident on the diamond at 30.0 Degrees. Find the angles of refraction for these two colors.

2. Relevant equations

sinr/sini = n2/n1 = wvlngth1/wvlngth2

3. The attempt at a solution

My problem is where to start on this question. I was thinking maybe use the index of refraction for air over the red, and then figure out each angle, would that be correct? Or am I missing something?
