first of all, write out what you're given.
1) it goes from oil to water.
2)the i = 44, r = ?
3) the n of oil is 1.47 and the n of water is 1,33
4) write out an equation. in this case it's n1sini = n2sinr
so whats what... oil is 1.47 and i is 44 degrees; because it goes from oil to water,
its 1.47Sin(44) = 1.33Sin(?)
1.33 = sin(inverse) 0.7677803042 which = 50.1
(also the n of air isn't important as the light is travailing through oil)
P.S physics is hard but like maths it becomes easy if you work away at it
