HOMEWORK 4 SOLUTIONS GEOMETRY AND REFLECTIONS P A R T A P A R T B (A) If the light strikes the first mirror at an angle 1 θ , what is the reflected angle 2 θ ? The law of reflection says that the angle of incidence is equal to the angle of reflection: 1 θ = 2 θ (B) Now, find the angle 3 θ (shown in the new figure) in terms of 1 θ . You can easily find 3 θ in terms of 2 θ , then just substitute your expression from Part A. 1 0 2 0 3 90 90 θ = θ = θ P A R T C P A R T D (C) Now, find the angle 4 θ shown in the figure in terms of α and 1 θ .
