(D_m)= 2r= A

So, (D_m)= 2(i-r) (You already know)

Now, 2r= 2(i-r)

Finally, i= 2r

Now, the refractive index given in the question is 1.5

So, {sin (i)}/{sin (r)}= 1.5

Now putting the value of i as 2r in the above equation, we get-

{sin (2r)}/{sin (r)}= 1.5

On using the “Sine Addition formula”,

2{cos (r)}= 1.5

So, {cos (r)}= 0.75

So, r= 41approx
