Height of water that would be filled in a container of height 21 cm so that it appears half filled to the observer when veiwed from the top of container is
[refractive index of water = 4/3]
2.) 10.5 cm
Respected sir/ madam
Is mu (sign of refractive index)=Real depth/Apparent depth and
mu (sign of refractive index)=Apparent height/ Real height, sir,are these two equations correct? which one will be used for solving the above question? please tell me when to use which equation?
I am in great confusion .Please help!

Let x be the real height of water that should be filled in the container.
Then the apparent height of water as viewed from top will be (21-x), as the height of the container is given as 21 cm
Hence the height of the water filled in the container = 12 cm

- when snell's law is not valid? or for what angle of incidence snell's law is not valid?
- In an aquarium a fish 6 cm long is swimming directly towards the plane glass front . If at a certain moment head of the fish is 18 cm behind the glass front,find the apparent length of the fish as seen by a person looking through the glass. Given R.I. of water = 4/3
