Question

# Refractive index of diamond with respect to glass is 1.6 and absolute refractive index of glass is 1.5. Find out the absolute refractive index of diamond.

A
2.4
B
1.6
C
1.06
D
None of the above

Solution

## The correct option is A 2.4Refractive index of diamond with respect to glass $${n}_{dg}=1.6$$Refractive index of glass $${n}_{g}=1.5$$Refractive index of diamond $${n}_{d}=?$$Refractive index of diamond with respect to glass  $${n}_{dg}=\dfrac{{n}_{d}}{{n}_{g}}$$So,the  refractive index of diamond $${n}_{d}={n}_{dg}\times{n}_{g}$$or, $${n}_{d}=1.6\times1.5=2.4$$hence,the refractive index of diamond is 2.4PhysicsNCERTStandard XII
