Refractive index of a medium n = C/V where C in velocity of light in vacuum and the V is the velocity of light in the medium
\(\displaystyle{n}=\frac{{{3}\cdot{10}^{{8}}\frac{{m}}{{s}}}}{{{2.29}\cdot{10}^{{8}}\frac{{m}}{{s}}}}={1.3100}\)

Suppose the light bulb in the figure below is replaced with a short wire of zero resistance, and the resistance of the rails is negligible. The only resistance is from the moving rod, which is iron (resistivity \(\displaystyle={9.50}\times{10}^{{-{8}}}\) ohm.m). The rod has a cross-sectional area of \(\displaystyle{3.50}\times{10}^{{-{6}}}\)m

An electron is fired at a speed of \(\displaystyle{v}_{{0}}={5.6}\times{10}^{{6}}\) m/s and at an angle of \(\displaystyle\theta_{{0}}=–{45}^{\circ}\) between two parallel conductingplates that are D=2.0 mm apart, as in Figure. Ifthe potential difference between the plates is \(\displaystyle\triangle{V}={100}\ {V}\), determine (a) how close d the electron will get to the bottom plate and (b) where the electron will strike the top plate.

Ok, If a bobsled makes a run down an ice track starting at 150m vertical distance up the hill and there is no friction, what isthe velocity at the bottom of the hill?
I know that the initial velocity here is 0 because it isstarting from rest. And this problem deal with theconservation of energy. But, I don't know where to go fromhere.
