Problem 34.6: Rank the indices of refraction

Please wait for the animation to completely load.

Rank the media from smallest index of refraction to largest. You can change the angle of the beam by clicking on the beam source and then click-dragging its hotspot. You can use the movable pink protractor and click-drag to measure angles (angle is given in degrees). Restart.
