Diamond has a high index of refraction at
about 2

Consider the case in which light ray A is in
cident on
mirror 1
, as shown in the figure.
The reflected ray is incident on
mirror 2
and
subsequently reflected as ray B. Let the an
gle of incidence (with respect to the normal)
on
mirror 1
be
θ
A
= 56
◦
and the point of
incidence be located 20 cm from the edge of
contact between the two mirrors.

What is the angle of the reflection of ray B
(with respect to the normal) on
mirror 2
?
Refer to the figure below.
Consider the
angle each ray makes with
mirror 1
.
Ray A
makes an angle of
φ
A
with
mirror 1
. This is
given by
φ
A

θ
A

B
.
The normal to
mirror 2
is parallel to
mirror
1
.
Thus the angle ray B makes with
mirror
1
(assumed to be extended) is
θ
B
. Both rays
make the same angle with respect to
mirror
1
. They are parallel, but point in the opposite
directions. Therefore the angle between them
is 180
