The angle of incidence equals the angle of reflection. Therefore, if your angle of incidence is 15 degrees, your angle of reflection equals that also. If it is 45 degrees, your angle of reflection is also 45 degrees, and so on.

### What happens to waves in shallow water?

When waves travel into areas of shallow water, they begin to be affected by the ocean bottom. The free orbital motion of the water is disrupted, and water particles in orbital motion no longer return to their original position. As the water becomes shallower, the swell becomes higher and steeper, ultimately assuming the familiar sharp-crested wave shape.
