#### Question is based on the following paragraph.An initially parallel cylindrical beam travels in a medium of refractive index  are positive constants and is the intensity of the light beam. The intensity of the beam is decreasing with increasing radius.Question: The speed of light in the medium is Option 1) maximum on the axis of the beam Option 2) minimum on the axis of the beam Option 3) the same everywhere in the beam Option 4) directly proportional to the intensity

As we learnt in

Refractive index -

- wherein

speed of light in vacuum.

speed of light in medium.

Correct option is 2.

Option 1)

maximum on the axis of the beam

This is an incorrect option.

Option 2)

minimum on the axis of the beam

This is the correct option.

Option 3)

the same everywhere in the beam

This is an incorrect option.

Option 4)

directly proportional to the intensity

This is an incorrect option.
