Refractive index is also called as index of refraction. It is a value which calculates ratio of light when light is passing from one medium into another. It is denoted by the letter ‘n’. It can be represented as n = c/v
Where c = velocity/speed of light of a certain wavelength in the air and
v = velocity of light in any medium.
The refractive index determines how much the path of light is bent, or refracted, when entering a material.
The refractive index depends on
- Nature of the medium
- Physical conditions
- Color of the wavelength of light
