## Homework Statement

Moving through air, a wave hits a steady area of water with a angle of 13°. The velocity of the wave in air is 550 m/s and in the water 1650 m/s. What is the refraction angle of the wave? Does the angle move away or to the line of symmetry?

Btw. I think I translated it correctly from Bosnian so correct me if it's wrong

## Homework Equations

So I didn't understand it so I went looking on the internet and found out it has to do something with some Huygenss dude.

Anyway this is what I went with :

**sinα/sinβ = c**

_{1}/c_{2}## The Attempt at a Solution

What I got was β = 41°(nearly)

and the wave goes away from the line of symmetry
