4.     The speed of the light in a diamond is 1,24,000 km/s. Find the refractive index of diamond if the speed of light in air is 3,00,000 km/s.

5.     Refractive index of glass relative to water is. What is the refractive index of water relative to glass?

6.     Why does a diamond shine more than a glass piece cut to the same shape?

7.     Why it is too difficult to shoot a fish swimming in the water?

8.     Determine the refractive index of benzene if the critical angle of it is 420.
