the angle of incidence is the angle measured between the normal and the incident ray.. the angle of reflection is the angle measured between the reflected ray and the normal..

When talking about reflection (normally with light), one works out the angle of incidence and the angle of reflection by drawing a line that is perpendicular (90 degrees) to the reflector and measuring the angle between this line and the ray of incidence/reflection. This line is called the normal line. It is easier to measure the angles of incidence and reflection on a flat surface, because it is easier to draw an accurate normal line.

= to the angle of reflection from a palne surface

The law of reflection states that the angle of incidence is equal to the angle of REFLECTION. Refraction is an entirely different phenomenon and has its own law.

The angle of incidence and reflection are reference to of a line normal or perpendicular to a surface. The incidence angle is the incoming ray angle relative to the normal line and the reflection is the outgoing angle relative to the normal line. Both angles are in the plane containing the normal line and the incidence ray.

The angle of incidence is ALWAYS equal to the angle of reflection! This is one of the laws of reflection.

Angle of incidence can be anything. Angle of reflection is the same as angle of incidence.

The angle of incidence is the angle between the incident ray of radiation (usually light) and the normal (perpendicular) at the point of incidence. Similarly, the angle of reflection is the angle between the reflected ray and the normal.

the angle of incidence is the angle measured between the normal and the incident ray.. the angle of reflection is the angle measured between the reflected ray and the normal..

-- The angle of incidence is the angle between the perpendicular to the reflecting surface and the direction from which the light arrives before reflection. -- The angle of reflection is the angle between the perpendicular to the reflecting surface and the direction toward which the light departs after reflection.

The Law of Sines is he relationship between the incidence angle and the reflection angle: Sin(I)/Incident velocity = Sin(R)/reflection velocity. If the incident and reflection velocity are the same, then the angles are the same.
