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

Suppose a convex lens is ground so that one surface has a radius of curvature of 30.0 cm and the opposing surface has a radius of curvature of 40.0 cm. The focal length is 34.2cm. What is the index of refraction of the lens? What kind of glass is the lens?

2. Relevant equations

Need help by using the formula

1/f=(n-1)(1/R1+1/R2).

3. The attempt at a solution

I knw R1=30 cm

R2=40 cm

f=34.2 cm

I cant finish finding n.
