A small bubble is trapped in a glass cube (n = 1.64) at a distance of 4.8 cm below the surface. How far below the surface does the bubble appear to be to a person looking at the block (in cm)?

(The index of refraction of air is 1.)

A small logo is embedded in a thick block of crown glass (n = 1.52), 3.20 cm beneath the top surface of the glass. The block is put under water, so there is 1.80 cm of water above the top surface of the block. The logo is viewed from directly above by an observer in air. How far beneath the top surface of the water does the logo appear to be? cm

You are looking, from directly above, at a goldfish at the bottom of a 54.0-cm fish tank filled with water. How far away does the fish look to you? The index of refraction of water is 1.34. A beam of light is incident, from air, on a flat surface of glass (n=1.50). The refracted ray inside the glass is found to make an angel of 26.7° with the direction of the incident ray. Calculate the angle of incident.

One may assume the rays relevant for image formation are making small angles relative to the normals of the glass. The position of the coral is meant to be the actual physical position of the fish. My professor told us we’d have to use Snell’s Law in an unusual way when solving this problem. 1.
