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

$n=\frac{3\cdot {10}^{8}\frac{m}{s}}{2.29\cdot {10}^{8}\frac{m}{s}}=1.3100$

A floating ice block is pushed through a displacement d=(15m)i-(12m)j along a straight embankment by rushing water, which exerts a force F=(210N)i-(150N)j on the block. How much work does theforce do on the block during the displacement?

A stream of water strikes a stationary turbine bladehorizontally, as the drawing illustrates. The incident water streamhas a velocity of +18.0 m/s, while the exiting water stream has avelocity of -18.0 m/s. The mass of water per second that strikesthe blade is 17.0 kg/s. Find themagnitude of the average force exerted on the water by theblade.

A 730-N man stands in the middle of a frozen pond of radius 5.0 m. He is unable to get to the other side because of a lack of friction between his shoes and the ice. To overcome this difficulty, he throws his 1.2 kg physics textbook horizontally toward the north shore , at a speed of 5.0 m/s. How long does ittake him to reach the south shore?
