What is its wavelength in Plexiglass where light travels at 67 percent of its speed in air?

This depends on the frequency (or color) of the light. There is a formula to calculate it: w = v / f Where w is the wavelength, v its speed and f its frequency.

Can we calculate distance between sun and earth by using formula s equals vt?

This method assumes a constant speed, and can be used if there is an object travelling from Sun to Earth, or from Earth to Sun (at constant speed, of course), and you know both the speed and the time it takes. It doesn't seem to be a very practical method in this case. Note that if you throw an object toward the Sun, it will go faster and faster, due to the Sun's gravitation, so you wouldn't have a constant speed. You can use the equivalent formula with integrals, of course.

What is Slovin's formula?

Slovin's formula is used to calculate the sample size (n) given the population size (N)and a margin of error (e). It is computed as n = N / (1+Ne2).

If the formula to calculate work is distance divided by time how do you apply the formula?

You would have a very tough time, because that isn't the formula to calculate work. (distance) divided by (time) is the formula to calculate speed. The formula to calculate work is: (force) multiplied by (distance).
