1 The Ray Box: Part One

2 Law of Reflection The law of reflection for light states that when light is incident on a specular reflecting surface the angle of incidence is equal to the angle of reflection. A specular reflector is a mirror-like reflector. Mirror Normal Incident BeamReflected Beam ii rr

3 No matter what the shape of the mirror is, if it is a specular reflector, the incident beam angle and the reflected beam angle will be equal to each other. Specular reflection occurs all around us from the mirrors for shaving or make-up applications, to road reflectors, to reflections from smooth surfaces such as water and glass. Obviously there are many, many more.
