Sorry for the rather simple equation this week. Finals are coming up so I do not have alot of time. Anyway onto what you are really reading this for:
n = c/v
n is the index of refration and is unit less
c is the speed of light in a vacuum (299,792,458 m/s) any unit system may be used
v is the velocity of light in the substanced again any unit system may be used but it must be the same system used for the speed of light.
