DO diffuse reflections still follow the law of reflection? (Angle of incidence equals angle of reflection)?

  1. drwls

    No. Diffuse reflection occurs over a wide range of angles (for any incoming ray direction), or all angles, because the surface is not smooth compared to the wavelength of light.
