|The bouncing back of a particle or wave that strikes a boundary b/t two media
|a line perpendicular to a surface
|Angle b/t an incident ray and the normal to a surface
|Angle of Incidence
|Angle b/t are reflected ray and the normal to the surface
|Angle of reflection
|the Angle of Incidence for a wave that srikes a surface is equal to the angle of reflection. This is true for both partially and totally reflected waves.
|Law of Reflection
|An image formed through reflection or refraction that can be seen by an observer but cannot be projected on a screen because light from the object does no acutally come to focus.
|the reflection of waves in many directions from a rough surface
