What are two examples of materials that are less rigid to light? glass and water
A mirror that curves outward is called a...mirror? convex

Where do you see convex mirrors? in gas stations and busses

What is one example of a diffuse reflector and one example of a polished reflector? diffuse: paper, polished: mirror
Why is paper a diffuse reflector? very rough surface for light rays so they reflect in many directions
Is a polished surface considered polished for all wavelengths? no, may be polished for long but not for short wavelengths
What reflects more sound, rigid and smooth or soft and irregulare surfaces? rigid and smooth
What happens to sound that is not reflected? it's absorbed or transmitted
What is acoustics? study of reflective properties of surfaces
