A large fish tank is filled with water (of refractive index 1.33). One side of the tank is made of a parallel-sided piece of glass. A ray of light strikes the glass from the outside at an angle of incidence of 48.

Estimate the angle through which this ray is deviated as it emerges into the water. Just give the magnitude of the deviation, there's no need for signs.
Give your answer in degrees.
