# (a) Interpretation: Wavelength of the sodium beamline in diamond and the wavelength of a ruby laser in Plexiglas should be calculated. Concept introduction: For electromagnetic radiation, v i = ν λ i Where, v i = velocity of the radiation in a given medium, i ν = frequency of the radiation λ i = wavelength of the radiation in the given medium, i For any electromagnetic radiation, ν is independent of the medium, whereas v i and λ i depend on the medium . Refractive index of a medium ( n i )is defined as the ratio between the velocities of a radiation in vacuum (c) and in that medium ( v i ), n i = c v i c = 3.00 × 10 8 m/s
