The refractive index (n) of a medium is related to its dielectric constant (ε) at optical frequencies through the Maxwell relation, which is given as:

[ n = sqrt{epsilon} ]

Given that the dielectric constant, ( epsilon = 256 ), we can calculate the refractive index as:

[ n = sqrt{256} ]

[ n = 16 ]

Therefore, the refractive index when the dielectric constant is 256 in air is 16.

, where εro is the dielectric constant at optical

frequencies and n is the refractive index.For the given dielectric constant we get n = 16.
