A treasure chest in a pond (do not assume water!)appears to be 2 m from the surface. When you dive under the surface you find that the chest is really 2.5 m below the surface. What is the index of refraction of the fluid?

Real depth = 2.5 m

Apparent depth = 2 m

Refractive index of fluid = Real depth/Apparent depth

Refractive index of fluid = 2.5/2

Refractive index of fluid = 1.25
