A ray of light of vacuum wavelength 550 nm traveling in air enters a slab of transparent material. The incoming ray makes an angle of 34.3◦ with the normal, and the refracted ray makes an angle of 18.9◦ with the normal. Find the index of refraction of the transparent material. (Assume that the index of refraction of air for light of wavelength 550 nm is 1.00.)
