What happens when there is reflection in light waves?
The light waves bounce off the surface and travel in a new direction
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…e of incidence = angle of reflection, diminishing with the square of the distance. Not all the energy is reflected fully. Some is scattered or absorbed by the reflecting surface. If the sound is reflected back and forth in a chaotic overlap the result is reverberation, as in a cathedral or in the ocean. In the sea reverberation gives whale calls that plangent "singing" quality, from what are really only squawks and grunts.
it bounces back to where it came from
Nothing. The speed of a reflected wave travels in the same media and is the same as the incident speed.
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…aster then 186 thousand miles per second and the speed of sound travels at approximately 1116 ft per second which is equal to only about 768 miles per hour. So, they are alike because the use the same scientific law of reflection but sound travels much slower then light. You can only hear a sound from up to a certain distance away, but light seems to travel faster then the conscious brain can process. Only thru extreme brainwave entrainment therapy, the neurons are stimulated to produce more dendrites which are like fibric extensions of the neurons. These fibers increase the surface area available for receiving incoming information. The more dendrites the brain has at its disposal, the more quickly and smoothly it can process information. Then you would be able to see how the theory of relativity was not really a conjecture when you can scientifically prove it, with an EEG.
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 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.
Light can be focused and directed by reflection, e.g by parabolic satellite dishes and fiber optic cable, both using reflection.
Some energy is absorbed by the reflecting surface and the direction of the wave can change.
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…luscent or transparent material. The speed of reflection is greater in the following ascending order. Transparent, transluscent and Opaque.
they are both being reflected,they r both waves,
Energy is conserved with an idea reflector, so there is no change in amplitude.
No. A black hole does not reflect light waves. But that is assuming you regard a black hole as an "object."
when light bounces off of a bumpy surface, will you see the objectthe light is striking
