Does speed of light change with medium?

Does speed of light change with medium?

Yes it does change with the change in medium because different mediums have different optical densities.

What is the speed of light 3×10 8?

Elements of the Special Theory
The speed of light is measured to have the same value of c = 3×108 m/s no matter who measures it.

Is speed of light same in all medium?

Light is made up of quantum particles called photons. Speed of photons never vary, and is constant – km per second. Speed of Light is constant in all mediums and in all reference frames – this is the second postulate of Special Relativity, and is found to be true.
