    laws of reflection.JPG When the rays of light fall on a surface and are bounced back to the same medium, then this bouncing back of light from the surface is called reflection. A highly polished surface
    like a mirror reflects back the incident light the maximum. There are two laws of reflection:

    i. The incident ray, the reflected ray and the normai at the point of incidence lie in the same plane

    ii. The angle of incidence is equal to the angle of reflection
