green light (520 nm) enters glass with n=1.52what is the wavelength of light in glass?
please help needed asap

Forgive me if I sound stupid here,,but what is the variable n?
Sounds like smoke to confuse you as the wavelength would be the same.
Compared with a different wavelength, it would be slightly longer or shorter.
Assuming refractive index, the angle would be about 32 degrees(guess)
I would have to re engineer Snells law from here but the calculator is down and not up to figuring on paper.

Why are you just dumping all your homework here?
v = c/n and f=v/lamda.
The frequency doesn’t change so wavelength is proportional to speed , which implies wavelength is inversely proportionate to n.
Hence in the glass
lambda = 520nm/1.52 = 342nm.
