Question

What do you mean by refractive index of a medium?

Solution

When a ray of light, travelling from one transparent medium (first medium) to another (second medium), suffers refraction, then the refractive index of the second medium with respect to the first medium is defined as the ratio of the sine of the angle ofincidenceinthe first medium to the sine of the angle of refraction in the second medium.
