Question & Answer

Define reflection of light


Bouncing back of light rays after hitting any surface is called reflection of light. If the surface is smooth and shiny, the light will reflect at the same angle at which it hits the surface. This is called regular reflection and produces good images. If the surface is rough and uneven, then some light rays may get absorbed, while others may reflect at varied angles, called as irregular reflection.
