Reflection – Practice
1) Mirrors can be used at narrow intersections so cars can see oncoming traffic. Using the diagram below, add in a mirror, an incident ray from car 1 and a reflected ray toward car 2:
2) What is the angle of incidence in the diagram below?
3) A light ray strikes a flat mirror at an angle of 65° measured from the surface. What is the angle of reflection?
4) Complete the diagram below to illustrate how the law of reflection applies to a curved surface:
