Reflection

All waves can be reflected from an obstacle - for example, water waves can reflect off a harbour wall and light waves can reflect off a mirror. The law of reflection is very simple

Reflection

If waves are incident upon a reflecting surface (e.g. mirror, harbour wall, etc.) they will obey the law of reflection which states:angle of incidence = angle of reflection, where the angles are measured from the surface normal.Specular ReflectionWhen the energy is scattered in only one direction, where the angle of incidence equals the angle of re...
