You know the wavelengths of the red and violet, you can find relative refractive indices for two lights (by assuming yellow light as a constant). Then you can use the formula for critical angle, since you already have the refractive indices. (just calculate everything in terms of an assumed constant 'x', and in the end you'll find that the 'x' gets cancelled)
Can you expalin the steps please?
@Ishaan94 please try.

You need to tell me what's critical angle?
The angle of incidence for which the angle of refraction is 90 degrees is called "critical angle".
Oh hmm, so relative reflective index must be \(\large n = \frac{\lambda_x}{\lambda_y}\), right?
ooooooooh Yeah!!!!
But how?
|dw:1334817280641:dw|\[n = \frac{\sin\theta_i}{\sin \theta_r}\]
\(\theta_r \to 90 \implies \sin\theta_r \to1\)\[\implies n = \sin\theta_i\]
Wow. Nice. Thankyou Aadarsh for posting it.
Yeah. Got it. So, it is: \[\sin 30 = 3500/7000 = 1/2 \] So, answer = sin 30 degrees, rite?
Yes, It is.
Thanks Bhaiiiiiiiiijan!!!
