Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the magnification must be \[ \tan ({ \theta _i  \theta_r}) \times \sqrt{1  h^2 } + h \over h\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[ {\sin \theta_i \over \sin \theta_r} = {4 \over 3} \\ \theta_r = \arctan \left( h \over \sqrt{1  h^2}\right)\] 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 \[ \tan \left( \arcsin \left( {4 \over 3} \sin \left( \arctan \left( h \over \sqrt{1  h^2}\right)\right)\right) \arctan \left( h \over \sqrt{1  h^2}\right)\right ) \times \sqrt{1  h^2 } + h \over h\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it seems that magnification is dependent on size of the fish. I'm not sure on this though. do you have an answer?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@demitris yep i ve printed it.....but how would you define lateral magnification

woleraymond

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

woleraymond

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so you mean angle OA'A is the incidence angle while OAC is refracted angle?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0im just trying to figgy why you are using sine L as ur incident or which formula are u using for n as refractive index
