Speed of light in water

  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,
