the answer is simple its the angle of incidence always equals the angle of reflection
A change in direction is implicit in the description "bounces". You can't have the second without the first.
Reflection occurs when seismic wave bounces backward as it reaches a boundary. It refers to the change in direction of a wave front at an interface between two different media.
reflectionWhen a wave bounces off a surface, it is said to have been reflected and the wave is called a reflection.reflectionWhen a wave bounces off a surface, it is said to have been reflected and the wave is called a reflection.
A wave that bounces off a surface is called a reflection, or a reflected wave. Colloquially, it is called an echo, a term normally reserved for sounds.
Some energy is absorbed by the reflecting surface and the direction of the wave can change.
When a wave hits a surface through which it cannot pass, and bounces back, that is called reflection.
When a sound wave strikes a smooth hard surface the wave bounces off. This means that the wave is deflected.
that isnt a question...? Perhaps the question was to be something like: "What is happening when a sound wave bounces off an object and returns in the direction from which it came?" Answer: The sound is echoing.
When an object or a wave hits a surface through which it cannot pass, it bounces back. This interaction with a surface is called reflection.When a wave enters a new medium at an angle, one side of the wave changes speed before the other side, causing the wave to bend. The bending of waves due to a change in speed is called refraction.When a wave moves around a barrier or through an opening in a barrier, it bends and spreads out. These wave interactions are called diffraction.
in reflection occurs when a wave bounces off a reflective surface, refraction is when a wave enters a new median, changing its speed, direction, and wavelength, and diffraction is when a wave bends due to a boundary.
bounces off a surface it cannot pass through
The motion is parallel to wave direction The motion is both parallel and perpendicular to wave direction. The motion is perpendicular to wave direction.
Reflection A wave that bounces off an object is a reflected wave.
A transverse wave is a wave in which the direction of displacement is perpendicular to the direction of propagation, as a surface wave of water. Another name for this word is an electromagnetic wave.
to produce an echo, the sound wave bounces off a surface and then comes back
The direction of the wave will eventually change to where the wind is blowing.
