Water is transparent. So why we are not able to see the depth of the sea????

Water is transparent, but we see objects only when light is reflected back from it.
Sea is very deep. Light from the Sun is not able to reach its depth.
So, even though water is transparent we are not able to see the depth of the sea.

- Draw a ray diagram showing refraction of light through a rectangular glass slab
- At night it is difficult to see through a closed glass-window from inside of an illuminated room. But this becomes relatively easy if the lights in the room are switched off. – Why?
- The refractive index of diamond is much greater than that of glass. How does a diamond cutter make use of this fact?
- During refraction of light on which side does the light bends while changing the medium ?
- Why refraction takes place through prism not through glass slab
- Draw and explain the dispersion of white light through a prism. Also, comment on the deviation, wavelength, frequency and speeds of the dispersed light.
- What is lateral displacement
- Prove that sin I=sin e in a glass slab
