1 of 5
What is an angle of incidence?
The angle of incidence is the angle between the incident ray and the normal.
2 of 5
What is an angle of reflection?
The angle of reflection is the angle between the reflected ray and the normal.

How is an image formed by a plane mirror?
The image formed by a plane mirror is virtual, the same size as the object, upright (the same way up as the object) and laterally inverted (back to front but not upisde down).
4 of 5
What is the law of reflection?
the angle of incidence = the angle of reflection
