Determine the direction in which a fish under water sees the setting sun. Refractive index of water

Asked by  | 8th Apr, 2008, 09:43: PM

Expert Answer:

You can draw a ray of light and use the refractive index of water to find the angle of incidence for a particular value of angle of refraction, that you take.

Remember the sun will appear raised or at a greater height as the fish is viewing the object from a denser medium.
