Speed of light in water

  1. Apr 24, 2007 #1
    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,
