The speed of light in media M1 and M2 is 1.5×108 m/s and 2.0×108 m/s respectively. A ray of light enters from medium M1 to M2 at an incidence angle i. If the ray suffers total internal reflection, the value of i is:

1. equal to \(\sin ^{-1}\left(\frac{2}{3}\right)\)
2. equal to or less than \(\sin ^{-1}\left(\frac{3}{5}\right)\) 
3. equal to or greater than \(\sin ^{-1}\left(\frac{3}{4}\right)\)
4. less than \(\sin ^{-1}\left(\frac{2}{3}\right)\)

A small coin is resting on the bottom of a beaker filled with a liquid. A ray of light from the coin travels up, to the surface of the liquid and moves along its surface (see figure). 
                
How fast is the light traveling in the liquid?

1. \(1.8 \times 10^8 \mathrm{~m} / \mathrm{s} \) 2. \(2.4 \times 10^8 \mathrm{~m} / \mathrm{s} \)
