What would you like to do?

What happens when there is reflection in light waves?

already exists.

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!

One difference between reflection and refraction of light waves is that?

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

What happens when light hits a reflective surface?

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 (

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
In Physics

What happens to a light wave as its frequency increases?

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

What happens when light waves strike a mirror?

-- 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
