**Relevant equations:**

n1 sin(θ1) = n2 sin(θ2)

n1 sin(θ1) = n2 sin(θ2)

2.18 sin(θ1) = 1.46 sin(65)

θ1=37 degrees but the real answer is 35.

Any help to where I went wrong?

n1 sin(θ1) = n2 sin(θ2)

1.46 sin(θ1) = 2.18 (sin 25)

θ1= 39, not 35.

Am I using the wrong angle measurement or is it my calculations that are off?
