Index of refraction of air at atmospheric pressure.

In Fig. 35-49, an airtight chamber of length d = 5.0 cm is placed in one of the arms of a Michelson interferometer. (The glass window on each end of the chamber has negligible thickness.) Light of wavelength λ = 500 nm is used. Evacuating the air from the chamber causes a shift of 60 bright fringes. From these data and to six significant figures, find the index of refraction of air at atmospheric pressure.
