Angle of incidence / angle of refraction practice problems

Light travels from diamond into air with an angle of incidence (θi) of 13.4 °. What is the angle of refraction (θr) if the refractive index of diamond is 2.4 and the refractive index of air is 1.

The angle of refraction is: ° (Give your answer to the nearest 10th of a degree)
