How to Calculate Refractive Index?
Refractive Index calculator uses Refractive Index=sin(Angle Of Incidence)/sin(Angle Of Refraction) to calculate the Refractive Index, The refractive index of a medium is defined as how the light travels through that medium. It is a dimensionless measure. It defines how much a light ray can bend when it enters from one medium to the other. Refractive Index and is denoted by RI symbol.
How to calculate Refractive Index using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Refractive Index, enter Angle Of Incidence (i) and Angle Of Refraction (r) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Refractive Index calculation can be explained with given input values -> 1.285575 = sin(40)/sin(30).
