What is the name of the amount of sunlight that the surface of the moon reflects?
In astronomy, the amount of light reflected by the Moon - or by any other object - is called "albedo", which literally means "whiteness".

What phase of the moon reflects least amount of light?
When the Moon lies between the Sun and the Earth the unilluminated portion of the Moon faces the Earth. In astronomical terminology this is known as a New Moon. _____________________________________________________________ Actually, the Moon reflects an equal amount of light in every phase. The difference is, how much of that reflected light then goes on to hit the Earth? During the Full Moon phase, the maximum amount of the reflected light strikes the Earth, and at the new moon phase, NONE of the reflected light...
How much light is reflected and transmitted when light strikes at a perpendicular to a surface?
It depends on the material of the surface. The material of the surface will dictate how much light will be absorbed. The angle it strikes just dictates how the light will be reflected or transmitted (which angle will it travel) and not the amount of light. ...

Is production of rainbow light reflected or refracted?
A reflected light would be light reflected by a mirror, and the light would remain unchanged. A reflected light of daylight is when white light is split into 'rainbow' colours. ...
Compare reflection and refraction?
When light hits a surface, part of the light is reflected. On a clean and polished metallic surface, almost hundred percent of the incident ray is reflected, while on a surface of a clear glass, only a small amount of light is reflected. When light bends as it passes from one medium to another, this is called reflection. ...
When light passes from air to glass the light may change direction due to reflection?
yes .. at any interface when light passes from one medium to another part of it gets reflected and remaining refracted. so some amount of light incident when passing from air to glass gets reflected. but in the reverse way i.e, from glass to air there is chance for all the light incident to get reflected as in the case of total internal reflection. and again coming to your case the amount of light reflected follows the laws of reflection i.e, angle...

How can a shadow be reflected?
It is actually impossible to reflect a shadow, as a shadow is merely an absence of light. However, what IS reflected is the light surrounding the shadow. When this light is reflected, it forms a reflected image of the light's shape, complete with a lack of light, or shadow. In this way, it can look like a shadow is reflected. ...
