Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. The due time is Central time. 001 (part 1 of 2) 10 points The speed of light is 3 10 8 m / s, the index of refraction of water is 1 . 33, and the index of refraction of glass is 1 . 5. Find the speed of light in water. 1. 1 . 5 10 8 m / s 2. 2 . 14286 10 8 m / s 3. 2 10 8 m / s 4. 1 . 66667 10 8 m / s 5. 3 10 8 m / s 6. 2 . 25564 10 8 m / s correct Explanation: Let : c = 3 10 8 m / s , and n w = 1 . 33 . The speed of light in water is v w = c n w = 3 10 8 m / s 1 . 33 = 2 . 25564 10 8 m / s . 002 (part 2 of 2) 10 points Find the speed of light in glass. 1. 2 . 25564 10 8 m / s 2. 1 . 66667 10 8 m / s 3. 3 10 8 m / s 4. 2 10 8 m / s correct 5. 2 . 14286 10 8 m / s 6. 1 . 5 10 8 m / s Explanation: Let : n g = 1 . 5 . The speed of light in glass is v g = c n g = 3 10 8 m / s 1 . 5 = 2 10 8 m / s . 003 (part 1 of 2) 10 points A beam of light with a wavelength 840 nm in air travels in water....
