A thin prism of refracting angle 2 deviates an incident ray through an angle of 1. Find the value of refractive index of the material of the prism.

Refractive angle of prism is given by:μ = sinA+δ2sinA2where A is the reafractive angle of prism.δ is the angle of deviation μ = Sin(2+12)Sin(22)μ = Sin(3/2)Sin(1)
