what is refrlaction and refraction. how does it fall from mirror?

Reflection: It is a phenomenon when light travelling in a medium falls on a surface and travels back in the same medium.
Example: When light travels from air and falls on a mirror, it turns back and travels back in air. This is reflection.
Refraction: It is a phenomenon when light travelling in a medium is incident on the boundary of the other medium, travels in the other medium.
In this, the speed of the light ray changes and hence it bends from its original path.
Example: When light is travelling in air and falls on a glass, then the light bends at the boundary of the air-glass interface and travels in glass. This is refraction.
From a mirror, only reflection occurs and refraction is not seen.

- In recent days what alternative we used for silvering of mirror?
- what is the cause of reflection of light
- we are unable to see our image in a plane mirror from every angle but we can see a chair in a room anywhere. Why?
- light is traveling in straight line?
- reflection of light
- A boy holding a plane mirror walks in reverse direction with speed of 0.5 m/s. He is able to see the image of scooter in the mirror which is standing at rest behind him. What is the speed at which the image of scooter approaches the boy?
- 90 = (360/3) -1
- What is the definition of light
- what is light
- when refraction does not cause when incident ray is normal to a interface
