1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A penny is placed at the bottom of a glass cylinder that is 30 cm in height. If the cyclinder is filled to 2/5 its volume: How much closer to an eye does the coin appear when viewed from directly above? 2. The attempt at a solution I don't quite know how to approach this problem but since we are studying refraction, I'm guessing it has to do with it. n water = 1.33 Can that be considered the "magnification"? 12 cm / 1.33 = 9 cm So, it appears to be 3 cm above the bottom surface?
