Highly polished, shiny surfaces reflect light the best as they are REFLECTive.

White or bright surfaces also reflect light well.

Dull, Matt surfaces are the worst reflecters of light

A completely smooth, metallic surface that lacks microtexturing reflects the most light; for example an optical quality mirror. Light is diffused in a dull surface by microscopic nooks and crannies in the surface. Even if the surface feels completely smooth, it will scatter light in all directions (making it 'fuzzy') if it is not smooth on a microscopic level. The nonexistent white-metallic surface would reflect the most light.

All surfaces reflect light. However, only the smoothest surfaces reflect all light in one direction. These are shiny and include mirrors and metal. Some surfaces just reflect the light in all directions, which is why you cannot see the reflection.

Yes, rough surfaces absorb more light than smooth surfaces. A rough surface has more surface area, which allows more light to be transferred.

Smooth, or reflective or shiny surfaces can reflect light.

Only a perfectly smooth surface can produce a clear reflection - i.e. a mirror.

The less smooth (rougher) the surface the blurrier the image.

Does light reflect off a rough surface?

It can reflect off a rough surface but the image is not clear ,causing an irregular reflection.


Why don't most paper reflect light?

As most paper's surface is rough at microscopic levels therefore they do reflect the light but the light reflected y them is scattered over a large surface due to its rough texture.......As they do not reflect light in a particular direction like mirrors therefore they seems not to reflect the light.....


What does light do when it strikes a surface that is not smooth?

When light strikes a rough surface it reflects in essentially random directions.

Why does a mirror reflect light so well?

Because it has a shiny & smooth surface which helps to reflect the light... Take an example of tree. A tree have a rough surface due to which light can be reflect. So All of this depends on the smoothness of surface.. :-)
