The index of refraction for red light in water is 1.331 and that for blue light is 1.340. If a ray of white light enters the water at an angle of incidence of 73.25°, what are the underwater angles of refraction for the blue and red components of the light? (Enter your answers to at least two decimal places.)

(a) blue component

°

(b) red component
