Question

A fish is vertically below a flying bird moving vertically down toward water surface. The bird will appear to the fish to be 

                                                                

Solution

Correct option is

Moving faster than its speed and also away from the real distance

 

  

For a plane surface, R = ∞

or   v = μ2u

Clearly, to the fish, the bird appears farther than its actual distance.

or Apparent speed of bird = refractive index × actual speed of bird.
