A ray of light hits the surface of a mirror at an incident angle of 10º to the normal. What is the angle of reflection for the ray of light?

Is it correct for me to say that the angle of reflection for the ray of light is 10º as ANGLE OF INCIDENCE = ANGLE OF REFLECTION?

  • Physics -

    Yes, if you measure both to the normal.

  • Physics -

    The angle of reflection is going to be 30

  • Physics -

    The angle of incidence equals the angle of reflection = 10º
