Prove that apparent depth is ¾ of real depth.

In figure OA passes straight along OAA’. Another ray of light from O incident at angle i on XY along OB deviates away from normal. It gets refracted at angle r along BC. When we produce back BC meets OA at I. Hence it’s the virtual image of O. Hence AI is the apparent depth and AO is the real depth.
Refractive index of water with respect to air is 4/3

- 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
- When a white ray of light passes through a prism , it is dispersed. Why? Why does violet colour deviates most, but red colour deviates least while dispersed by a prism?
