    Best answer

    Ans.-  2 x 108 m/s

    Solution:-
    Refractive Index = Speed of light in air/ speed of light in medium.
    Speed of light in air = 3 x 108 m/s
    Refractive Index = 1.5
    Speed of light in medium = ?
    Speed of light i n medium = Speed of light in air / Refractive Index.
    Speed of light in medium = 3 x 108  / 1.5
    = 2 x 108 m/s
    Therefore the of light in the medium of refractive index 1.5 will be  2 x 108 m/s
