The angle of reflection (θr) off a planar surface (eg. mirror) is equal to the angle of incidence (θi) on that surface. They are measured with respect to the normal, which is an imaginary line drawn perpendicular to the surface.

Or, in simpler terms, the angle of reflection is the same as the angle of incidence.

# At what angle does light reflect off a mirror?

The angle of instance=the angle if refraction

# At what angle does a light ray reflect off a mirror?

It reflects at like 45 degrees I think.. No, it reflects off at the same angle it hits the mirror. If the light wave hits the mirror at a 30 o angle on the left side, it wil

# What angle does a light ray reflect off a mirror?

the same angle with which it (the incident ray) hits the mirror surface. this physical law is known by the formula Î± = Î². thereÂ´s a simple way to prove it: look

# How does light reflect off a plane mirror?

amsw2. A mirror, provided it is smooth to below the wavelength of light, will reflect the light in the same way you can see a water wave be reflected from a wall.

# What is the angle if a wave bounces off a mirror with the reflection of 55 degrees?

The angle of incidence is also 55 degrees because it is reflected

# A light ray hitting a mirror at an angle is reflected off at angle?

The angle between the incident ray and the mirror is equal to the angle between the reflected ray and the mirror.

# Can lightning be reflected off a mirror?

Of course. Any source of light can be reflected from a mirror.. The lightning itself will not reflect from a mirror.

# How is light reflected off of a concave mirror?

The way light is reflected is different in a concave mirror depending on the position and distance from the object. when light hits the concave mirror when it is near the obje

# A light wave was reflected off of a mirror at an angle of 10 degrees What was the incident angle?

The incident angle to the Mirror will be 10 deG.

# What is the angle of incidence if a reflected wave bounces off a mirror with an angle of reflection equal to 55º?

If a light ray is reflected from a flat mirror with a reflection angle of 55 o then the angle of incidence was also 55 o . When reflecting from a mirrored surface, the angle

# How does light reflect off of a mirror and water?

the light bounces of the water and makes the water shine This (above) doesn't really answer the question. It has to do with the light rays going from one media to a differen

# How can light reflect off a mirror?

By 'Atomic Scattering', which is the absorption and re-emission of light energy by the particles of a medium which will not absorb the energy. It depends if the mirror is co

# What is the angle of incidence if a reflected wave bounces off a mirror at an angle of fifty five degrees?

It makes the same angle, on the other side of the normal, at the point of incidence.

# What is true about the angle of incidence and the angle of reflection for curved mirrors?

Those angles are equal at the point where a ray oflight hits the mirror, regardless of the shape of the mirror.
