State Laws Of Reflection Of Light



There are 2 major statements regarding the laws of reflection:-

1. The angle of incidence = angle of reflection


2. The incident ray, the reflected ray and the normal (line perpendicular to the plane of the mirror/ reflective surface) all lie in the same plane.

1) The incident ray, normal ray & the reflected ray all lie in the same plane.

2) angle of reflection= angle of incidence

this answer was already asked

angle incidence = angle reflection

the incident reflected rays  and normal lie on the same plane

  • The incident ray , reflected ray and normal all lie on the same plane , i.e.  plane of paper .
  • Angle of incidence    =  Angle of reflection
