law of reflection

As applied to rays of light, sound, or radiant heat which strike a surface: the angle of reflection is equal to the angle of incidence, and the reflected and incident rays are in the same plane with a perpendicular to the surface.

Knowledge of two basic optics processes is intended to be delivered in the learning activities: the formation of vision and the law of reflection. The proposed learning design uses mobile phones and video conferencing tools to help students see virtual images in circumstances in which they usually cannot see them.

The book is structured around eight "laws," each of which is a cornerstone for "enlightened negotiation." The laws, such as "The Law of Trust," "The Law of Intention," and "The Law of Reflection," are thoroughly described in distinct sections that feature engaging text augmented by numerous short case studies illustrating each law at work.
To control the reflection angle, we use the generalized Snell's law of reflection [24]

Recently, I spent a clinic day with an attending who could be described as, "old school," defined by Merriam-Webster as "Characteristic or evocative of an earlier or original style, manner, or form." We began by reviewing the ENT exam performed using the angle of incidence and the law of reflection. On to the next patient, who had chronic sinusitis, he advised, "Be sure that CT scan is ordered with image guidance protocol." He proceeded to reminisce about the days when ethomoidectomics were performed with a head mirror and an ultimate knowledge of anatomy.
However, PhD student Tom Jordan and his supervisors Professor Julian Partridge and Dr Nicholas Roberts in Bristol's School of Biological Sciences found that these silvery fish have overcome this basic law of reflection -- an adaptation that may help them evade predators.

This law of reflection is a law of healing to the discords of human experience because discords, such as relationship problems, financial lack, illness, stress, injury and discontent are not in or of God.
The law of physics applicable here is that any wave will be reflected according to the rule 'the angle of incidence = the angle of reflection' (the law of reflection) by any surface with a roughness less than one wavelength but will be scattered (diffuse reflection) by any surface with a roughness greater than a few wavelengths.
Snell's Law of refraction and the law of reflection provide the relevant angles, from which the distance each ray travels is computed.
