What is the smallest possible angle of incidence for a light ray traveling toward a mirror?

The smallest possible angle of incidence for a light ray traveling toward a mirror is 1800. This is because then, the light ray will be either parallel or on the principal axis and hence, the angle of incidence would be 00.


What is the largest possible angle of incidence for a light ray traveling toward a mirror?

90 degrees is the largest possible angle of incidence because it is then parallel to the face of the mirror and is grazing the mirror.


What is a point of incidence?

The point of incidence is the point where the ray of incidence strikes the mirror.


What will happen when a light is shone at a mirror?

THE MIRROR WILL REFLECT THE LIHGHT


The angle of incidence of a mirror is equal to the angle of reflection?

yes


Characteristics of a plane mirror?

surface which reflects angles of incidence.


What happens to the light rays as they hit the mirror?

They are reflected at the angle of incidence.


What is the angle of incidence when a ray falls normally on a mirror?

0 degrees


What is the angle of something is the angle at which light hits a mirror?

angle of incidence


What is the angle formed by a light ray coming into a mirror?

The angle between the ray and the perpendicular to the mirror (NOT the mirror itself), at the point where the ray hits the mirror is called the angle of incidence.


What is the angle of incidence if a reflected wave bounces off a mirror with an angle of reflection equal to 55ยบ?

If a light ray is reflected from a flat mirror with a reflection angle of 55o then the angle of incidence was also 55o. When reflecting from a mirrored surface, the angle of incidence equals the angle of reflection.


What will be the reason - a plane mirror has an angle of incidence O degree?

The light ray arrives perpendicular to the plane of the mirror.


Can the angle of incidence be greater than the angle of reflection when plane mirror?

No, if the mirror is flat (a plane), the angle of incidence always equals the angle of reflection.


If the angle between the mirror and incident ray is 50 what will be the angle of incidence?

The angle of incidence is defined as the angle between the incoming light and the line that is normal to the surface at the point where the light 'hits' the surface. The reflectrion angle is the same as the incidence angle. If the angle between the incident ray and the mirror ray is 50, then the angle of incidence is half of this. That is, 25 degrees.


Laws of reflection by a plane mirror?

angle of incidence is equal to angle of reflection.


The angle formed by a light ray coming into a mirror is?

VIERRA! The angle of incidence.


Is the angle of incidence less than the angle of reflection on a plane mirror?

they are equal


What is the angle of incidence when a ray of incident normally on a plane mirror?

It is 0 degrees.


Does the angle of incidence equal the angle of reflection when a straight light ray hits a straight mirror?

Yes, the angle of incidence always equals the angle of reflection when a straight ray of light hits a mirror that isn't bent.


What are value of angle of incidence and angle of reflection for normal incidence of light on mirror?

Both are zero. Thereby it obeys the second law of reflection ie angle of incidence is equal to angle of reflection.


What will be the angle of reflection if a ray of light is incident towards a plane mirror at an angle of 30 degrees with the mirror surface?

If the ray hits the mirror at an angle of 30 degrees with the mirror surface, the complementary angle that the ray makes with the normal (perpendicular) to the mirror at the point of incidence is (90 - 30) = 60 degrees and since angle of incidence is equal to angle of reflection in a plane mirror, the angle of reflection is 60 degrees.


What is the angle of incidence if a plane mirror has an angle of 20?

The answer depends on knowing what the plane mirror hhas a 20-degree angle relative to!


What is the beam of light that travels towards the mirror called?

Incident ray or ray of incidence.


What is the angle of incidence when a ray of light falls normal to mirror?

It is the angle at which the incoming light beam strikes the mirror. 'Normal' means 'perpendicular', and the 'angle of incidence' is defined as the angle with respect to the normal. These two facts can serve as powerful clues.


What is the difference between image distance and object distance?

image distance is the distance from the point of incidence on the mirror, the where the image is reflected to.object distance is the distance from the actual object being reflected to the point of incidence on the mirror where it's reflected as an image.
