What are the values of 1)angle of incidence and 2)angle of reflection for normal incidence on a plane mirror surface ? Is there any angle of refraction for normal incidence on a plane mirror ? if yes , what is it ?

Expert Answer:

The angle of incidence, angle of reflection, are equal.Refraction is the change in direction of a wave due to a change in its speed. This involves two mediums for the light to travel. Hence, here, in this case there cannot be any angle of refraction.
