Reflection of light
- When a light beam strikes a polished, smooth surface and bounces back, it is known as light reflection.
- After striking the surface, the incident light rays reflect off of it.
- The ray that bounces back is known as the reflected ray.
- A perpendicular would be normal on a reflecting surface.
- A clear and sharp reflection is produced by specular or regular reflection.
Explain the differences between regular and irregular reflection light.
Regular light reflection takes place on flat surfaces, such as a plane mirror. Reflection on uneven surfaces, like a blackboard, causes erratic light reflection.
