Problem: Light passes from air into some other medium. The light enters with an incident angle of 40o and a wavelength of 425 nm, and passes through the boundary with some refracted angle of 30o. What is the wavelength of the light in the medium? Assume all angles are measured with respect to the normal of the boundary.
