Geometrical optics #2

A narrow beam of sodium light (λ=5893 A) is incident from air on a smooth surface water at θ=35°. Find the refraction angle and wavelength in water.

n=λ_0/λ:wavelength of light in a material
n_asinΘ_a=n_bsinΘ_b: snells law
n=c/v:index of refraction

I tried using the wavelength of light in a material to find n. I got confused because λ will equal each other. I am not sure if it is correct. Please help. Thanks
