What is reflected light?
Reflected light on a smooth surface is called specular or regular reflection. The incident ray, the reflected ray and the normal to the reflection surface at a point of the incidence lie in the same plane.Ê
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.
