Look at the flame with cobalt blue glass to filter out any orange/ yellow light from the flames.

Suppose that you are given a powder which burns red in a standard propane flame. What is the cation in that compound?

Light travels from air into a glass fragment with an angle of incidence of 42 degrees. The angle of refraction at the end of the fragment is 18 degrees.
Calculate the index of refraction of the glass. Round to the nearest hundredth.

asinθ1=bsinθ2
b=asinθ1/sinθ2
=asin42°/sin18°
a=1.00
∴ b=2.17
