REFLECTION = ? When a light source comes into contact with a smooth, opaque object.
Total Internal Reflection When the angle between light ray + normal > critical angle
Critical Angle Angle at which the light source skims along the boundary.
How does internal reflection occur? - Light must be travelling into a substance of lower optical density - Must strike at an angle greater than critical angle of incidence
If the reflecting surface is very smooth, the reflection of light that occurs is called ___________. Regular reflection
The Law of Reflection states that the __________ = __________. Angle of incidence; angle of reflection
The _________, the _________, and the _________ all lie on the same plane. Incident ray; reflected ray; normal
The ______ and the ______ are on the opposite sides of the ________. Reflected ray; incident ray; normal
