reflection law

reflection law

[ri′flek·shən ‚lȯ]
(physics)
When a wave, such as electromagnetic radiation or sound, is reflected from a surface in a sharply defined direction, the reflected and incident waves travel in directions that make the same angle with a perpendicular to the surface and lie in a common plane with it. Also known as law of reflection.

This method does not use reflection law but the minimum optical path to determine the location of the reflection point of wall.
Although at that time Herman Weyl's idea was rejected because by this parity or reflection law was violated which was considered as one of the sacred laws of Physics at that time but afterward when two China born Physicists Lee and Yang [3] pointed out that parity might not be remained conserved in beta decay which was confirmed by another China born Physicist working in America Madam C.
