  • the light going towards the mirror is called the incident ray
  • the light that has been reflected is called the reflected ray
  • the line perpendicular to the mirror is called the normal.
  • the angle between the incident ray and the normal is called the incidence angle
  • the angle between the ray of reflection and the normal is called the angle of reflection
