### What is meant by angle of reflection?

With specular reflection (how a mirror reflects) the light is reflected from the mirror surface in a specific way.Light from a single incoming direction is reflected into a single outgoing direction as described by the law of reflection.This states that the direction of incoming light (the incident ray), and the direction of outgoing light reflected (the reflected ray) make the same angle with respect to the surface normal, thus the angle of incidence equals the angle of reflection and that the incident, normal, and reflected directions are coplanar.

### What is the angle that the incoming wave makes with the normal equals the angle that the outgoing wave makes with the normal?

law of reflection

### A incoming beam of light strikes a mirror at an angle and reflects. what appears of the angle of the reflected beam?

The angle of approach and the reflected angle is always the same.

### What is the angle of the incoming light ray is equal the angle of the reflected light ray?

Because this light ray passes through without being bent.

### What is true of an angle of light rays coming into an object and the angle of light rays reflected off an object?

Reflected rays are equal to the angle of incoming rays.

### The principle that the incoming angle of light is equal to the outgoing angle of Reflected Light is called the?

prinsables of incoming and outgoing angles prinsables of incoming and outgoing angles prinsables of incoming and outgoing angles

### What is the angle called when the reflected light rays make with the normal?

The angle is called the reflected angle.

### What is true of the angle of light ray s coming into an object and the angle of light rays reflected off an object?

Reflected rays are equal to the angle of incoming rays.

### How are incident ray reflected ray and normal related?

The angle between the incident ray and the normal is known to be angle of incidence The angle between the reflected ray and the normal is said to be angle of reflection By the law, the angle of incidence = angle of reflection

### How are incident ray reflected ray normal related?

The angle between the incident ray and the normal is known to be angle of incidence The angle between the reflected ray and the normal is said to be angle of reflection By the law, the angle of incidence = angle of reflection

### State 2 laws of reflection?

The 2 laws of reflection are 1. angle of incidence is always equal to the angle of reflection. And 2. incident ray,reflected ray and the normal at the point of incidence lie in the same plane.

### What is the angle between the reflected ray and the normal called?

The angle of incidence.
