The diver appears to have a height of $~~113~cm$

Work Step by Step

We can use the following formula: $h' = \frac{h}{n}$ where $h'$ is the apparent height and $h$ is the actual height We can find the apparent height: $h' = \frac{h}{n}$ $h' = \frac{150~cm}{1.33}$ $h' = 113~cm$ The diver appears to have a height of $~~113~cm$
