What happens when there is reflection in light waves?
Nobody would be able to see.
reflection is when light is bounced back(this can be done with a mirror)and refraction is the bending of light(like if you put a pencil in a glass of water it looks like it be…nds).
The mirror will shoot the light the way it is pointing.
Are the light waves reflecting off a red stop sign longer or shorter than the waves reflecting off a violet colored jacket Why?
Visible light ranges from longer red light wave to shoter violet light waves in the spectrum,so the red stop sign light waves are longer.
reflection is when light its something like a mirror and refraction is light going through something solid that is not like a mirror when light falls on a surface and bounces… back, it is reflection and when light is absorbed by the surface or passes through the surface but does not bounces back, it is refraction.
When an object hits through which it can not pass it bounces back
White light is a mixture of all colors of light within the visible spectrum. The white paper reflects all of the light, which is why you see the white paper as being white.
It reflects with the angle of incidence (angle between the original ray of light and the normal (90 degrees to the mirror surface)) being the same as the angle of reflection (…angle between the reflected ray of light and the normal). Some of the light energy is transferred into heat energy by the mirror, so the reflected beam is less bright than the original beam, but the difference is barely noticeable on a clean mirror.
The light waves bounce off the surface and travel in a new direction
When light reflects, on an object it bounces off of the object and you can see the object much more clearly.
The angle of incidence of a light ray = the angle of reflection. Also, when light is incident on a medium of higher density than the current medium (e.g. a glass mirror in air…) then the wave undergoes a 180 degree phase shift. If the surface is rough and bumpy, then the rays are scattered about all over the place. I hope this answers your question, i dont know how detailed an answer you wanted.
The light wave would carry more energy as the light's frequency increases. Not only that, you would see the light visually go from a deep red to a very bright violet-white. It… would go across the electromagnetic spectrum, from infrared to ultra-violet light.
They would bounce off the mirror and become nonparallel going off at whatever angle they hit the mirror at, in different directions.
The wavelengths are corresponded to the color of the light. A blue object will reflect any light radiation expect the color blue. It will absorb the blue light.
-- Part of the light is reflected from the front surface of theglass. The rest of it continues on into the glass. -- On its way through the glass, part of the light is absorb…ed bythe glass. The rest of it continues on, to the rear surface. -- The light that reaches the rear surface of the glass strikes thesilver coating on the glass. Part of the light is absorbed by the silver coating.The rest of it is reflected back, in the direction it came from, and enters the rearsurface of the glass. -- On its way back through the glass, part of the light is absorbedby the glass. The rest of it continues on, toward the front surface. -- When the light reaches the front surface of the glass, part ofit is reflected from the surface, and heads back into the glass. The rest of itleaves the glass through the front surface, back into the air, perhaps to becomepart of a virtual image if anybody is out there watching.
