The equation of refraction at a spherical surface is μ 2 / v – μ 1 /u = μ 2- μ 1 /R taking R=∞, show that this equation leads to equation real depth/ apparent depth = μ 2 /μ 1


The equation of refraction at a spherical surface is


 


μ2 / v – μ1 /u = μ2- μ1 /R


 


taking R=∞, show that this equation leads to equation


 


real depth/ apparent depth = μ21
