The figure (http://i43.tinypic.com/2dt5e2e.jpg") shows a ray of light traveling through a gas (n = 1.00), a solid (n = 1.84), and a liquid (n = 1.61). What is the angle θ made by the ray as it enters the liquid?
(n1)(sin θ1)=(n2)(sin θ2)
The Attempt at a Solution
(1.00) (sin 90-35) = (1.84) (sin θ)
θ = 26.4 degrees
(1.84) (sin 26.4) = (1.61) (sin θ)
θ = 30.5 degrees
