the index of refraction of h2o is 1.33. find the angle of refraction of a beam of light in air hitting the h2o surface at an angle of 60 degrees n(air)=1.00

    Snell's Law:


    Angles are measured to the normal, not surface.

    SinThetaincident*nair=SinThetaRefracted*nwater

    sin30*1=SinTheta*1.33

    theta=arcsin .377=22 deg

    k so the answer would b 22 degrees????
