How could the index of refraction of salt water be used to find the concentration of a salt solution?

  • Physics - ,

    You need experimental data on refractive index vs. salinity. Such data exists. See

    for example

    You also need an experimental measurement of the actual refractive index. This can be performed with a triangular prism containing the solution.
