What happens when waves fall on a transparent medium? Waves are partly reflected and partly refracted
What is reflection? Reflection is the bouncing back of particles or wave that strikes a boundary between two media.
What is the law of reflection? The law of reflection states that the angle of incidence and the angle of reflection are equal to each other.
What is an incident wave? A light wave that strikes a boundary.
What is a reflective wave? A light wave that bounces off a boundary.
What is a normal? A normal is a line drawn perpendicular to the point where the incident ray strikes the barrier.
