oops ... this is a unit circle. the the coordinate is \( (h, \sqrt{1  h^2})\)dw:1348161039200:dw

the magnification must be \[ \tan ({ \theta _i  \theta_r}) \times \sqrt{1  h^2 } + h \over h\]

\[ {\sin \theta_i \over \sin \theta_r} = {4 \over 3} \\ \theta_r = \arctan \left( h \over \sqrt{1  h^2}\right)\] Therefore \[ \theta_i = \arcsin \left( {4 \over 3} \sin \left( \arctan \left( h \over \sqrt{1  h^2}\right)\right)\right)\] Hence the magnification is \[ \tan \left( \arcsin \left( {4 \over 3} \sin \left( \arctan \left( h \over \sqrt{1  h^2}\right)\right)\right) \arctan \left( h \over \sqrt{1  h^2}\right)\right ) \times \sqrt{1  h^2 } + h \over h\]

Also make clear the angle of incidence and that of refraction

theta_1 is angle of refraction and theta 2 is angle of incidence.

it seems that magnification is dependent on size of the fish. I'm not sure on this though. do you have an answer?

@demitris yep i ve printed it.....but how would you define lateral magnification

woleraymondBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so how did magnification becomes refractive index

so you mean angle OA'A is the incidence angle while OAC is refracted angle?
