all waves can
1 of 6
When do reflection, refraction and diffraction occur?
When the waves meet an obstacle.
2 of 6
Does reflection, refraction and diffraction allow us to see?
Reflection-1. Reflection of light is what allows us to see objects. Light bounces off them into our eyes.

Angle of incidence=angle of reflection
