Hi, I am working on a physics problem but got stuck on the algebra part of the solution, can someone please help me with simultaneous equations?
I am applying Snell's Law to find the refractive index of a prism (), however, the only information I have is:
And the two equations would be:
This was an optics lab session and I am using a method called total internal reflection and then finding the refraction index from the critical angle (which is in this problem). After that point I used trig identities to resolve but then I got stuck and not sure if I equated the equations properly.
Thank you very much,
