(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

speed of sound in water is 1600m/s at the surface and increases linearly with depth at a rate of 0.017/s, find the range at which a ray emitted horizontally at a source of dept 150m will reach the surface

C = sound speed in water (1500m/s)

gradient = g (0.017/s)

2. Relevant equations

Relevant equations I used will be calculate the Radius of the curvature of the Ray

R (curvature of Ray) = c0/g

3. The attempt at a solution

I keep getting a huge figure 883880m ...

and i know it is not correct.
