Reflection of light
Waves that come from some source of light and fall on a thing are known as Incidence rays. Active rays that bounce back after hitting a object are known as reflected rays.
2 Types of Rays
- When light travels from one median to another it bends. Like from air to water - Water is more dense than air (less dense) - Slowing down of light waves in water, due to density of water, make their direction shift
