Given :

▪ Refractive index of water = 4/3

▪ Speed of light in air = 3×10^8m/s

To Find :

▪ Speed of light in water.

Concept :

✒ Refractive index of medium is defined as the ratio of speed of light in air to the speed of light in medium.

✒ Refractive index is an unitless as well as dimensionless quantity.

Mathematically,

\bigstar\:\underline{\boxed{\bf{\red{n=\dfrac{v_{air}}{v_{medium}}}}}}

Calculation :

\implies\sf\:n_{water}=\dfrac{v_{air}}{v_{water}}\\ \\ \implies\sf\:\dfrac{4}{3}=\dfrac{3\times 10^8}{v_{water}}\\ \\ \implies\sf\:v_{water}=\dfrac{3\times 3\times 10^8}{4}\\ \\ \implies\underline{\boxed{\bf{\purple{v_{water}=2.25\times 10^8\:mps}}}}
