Geometric Optics: Snell's Law

Problem #: 1 | Variant #: 3

At the interface between two materials a light ray is at an angle of 34o with the interface on a side with an index of refraction of 1.73. If the light is at an angle of 54.38o on the other side of the interface, what is the index of refraction on this side?
