By How Much Does The Duration Of Optical

By how much does the duration of an optical day exceed that of a geometric day? Model the Earth’s atmosphere as uniform, with index of refraction 1.000 293, a sharply defined upper surface, and depth 8 614 m. Assume that the observer is at the Earth’s equator, so that the apparent path of the rising and setting Sun is perpendicular to the horizon.
