# A fish is raising vertially to the surface of water in a lake uniformly at the rate of 2m/s observes a bird diving vertically towards water at a rate of 4m/s vertically above it.the refractive index of water is 4/3.what is the actual velocity of the bird?

Ans. 1.5m/s
If at any instant the fish is at the depth 'x' below fish water surface while the bird at a height y above the surface, then the apparent height of the bird from the surface as seen by the fish will be given by
Âµ =  or Apparent height = Âµy
So, the total apparent distance of the bird as seen by the fish in water will be
h = x + Âµy
or
4= 2 + Âµ()
dy/dt =2/(4/3)=6/4=3/2=1.5m/s

# If light is a electromagnetic wave and light has very less mass and gravitational force is directly proportional to mass of the body and therefore this neglible mass of the sun's electromagnetic wave (light) allows them to escape the gravity of the sun and travel towards the earth .Then why this theory is not applicable or hold true for dark holes we know due dark holes's strong gravitational force light can't escape but you told gravitational pull is directly proportional to mass and light has neglible mass so it should also escape dark holes? please explain this.
