how the laws of reflection are applicable in sperical mirrors ? show with a diagram incident and reflected angle

Expert Answer:

From the above diagram, we see that:
1. The incident ray, the reflected ray and the normal at the point of incidence, all lie in the same plane.
2. The angle of reflection (r) is always equal to the angle of incidence (i).

Hence, we conclude that the laws of reflection are applicable to spherical mirrors as well.
