(2 points) Light passes from medium X to medium Y and further to medium Z as shown. What can you say about refractive indexes of the media? A . n X <n Y <n Z . B . n X <n Z <n Y . C . n Y <n X <n Z . D . n Y <n Z <n X . E . n Z <n X <n Y . F . n Z <n Y <n Z . Solution. according to the law of reflection sin θ X /sin Y =n Y /n X Since X > Y it follows than n X <n Y , Similarly Y < Z . therefore n Y >n Z We can also conclude that since X > Z it follows than n X <n Z n X <n Z <n Y . Answer B . X Y Z
