I need some guidance on if i am working the problem right! Do i use Snell's Law?

Yellow: 1.492sin(30) = 1.000293sinθ

Green: 1.493sin(30) = 1.000293sinθ

When I do the calculations i am not getting the correct. The answer is suppose to be 0.043 degrees and 1.33 m. Where do you think I am messing up the calculations?

Using those same equations I get 0.043 degrees, so I'm not sure where you went wrong. Try this: (1) Solve for the angle of refraction for each color; (2) Subtract those angles to find the angle
