Reflection of Light

Reflection of Light

Note: Both the angle of incident and angle of reflection must be measured from the normal.

Laws of Reflection

  1. The law of reflection state that
    1. The angle of incidence is equal to the angle of reflection; the ray leaves the surface at the same angle as it arrives.
    2. The incident ray, the reflected ray and the normal all lie in the same plane; all three could be drawn on the same flat piece of paper
