# What happens when there is reflection in light waves?

Would you like to merge this question into it?

#### already exists as an alternate of this question.

Would you like to make it the primary and merge this question into it?

#### exists and is an alternate of .

That means that the light waves rebound, and change direction.
Thanks for the feedback!

# What happens when light waves get reflected?

The light waves bounce off the surface and travel in a new direction

# What happens when sound waves get reflected?

Ummmmm, NO. Ignore that. This describes an Echo. Assuming a perfectly smooth surface, the reflected wave travels away from the reflector in accordance with the usual angl

# What happens when a wave is reflected?

it bounces back to where it came from

# When the wave is reflected what happens to speed?

Nothing. The speed of a reflected wave travels in the same media and is the same as the incident speed.

# How is reflected light waves and reflected sound waves are alike?

They are alike because they are using the same type of affect in regards to the laws of reflection , the only slight difference is the speed of light travels at a little bit f

# What happens to light waves during reflection?

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

Yes.

# What light waves does a blue object reflect?

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.

# What is advantages of reflection of lights waves?

Light can be focused and directed by reflection, e.g by parabolic satellite dishes and fiber optic cable, both using reflection.

velocity

# When a wave is reflected what happens?

Some energy is absorbed by the reflecting surface and the direction of the wave can change.

# What is happening to a wave if it is being reflected?

when a wave is been reflected, the direction of the wave changes. The speed of a reflected wave depend on the material that caused the reflection, either it's an opaque, trans

# How is reflected light waves and reflected sound waves alike?

they are both being reflected,they r both waves,
In Physics

# What happened to amplitude when wave reflected?

Energy is conserved with an idea reflector, so there is no change in amplitude.
In Science

# Do all object reflect light waves?

No. A black hole does not reflect light waves. But that is assuming you regard a black hole as an "object."

A mirror

# To reflect mean to absorb light waves?

when light bounces off of a bumpy surface, will you see the objectthe light is striking
