Abstract

In Pune sample of four different river water Mula, Mutha, Indrayani and Pawana were collected on 27th January 2019 in day time. Refractive index of each river water was experimentally obtained using hollow glass prism, Spectrometer and monochromatic Sodium light source. Refractive index of all river water was compared with respect to Refractive index of tap water. It was found that Pawana river was most polluted and Mutha river was least polluted. The reason for Pawana River to be most polluted was the distance travelled through the industrial region was more as compare to other river.
