A NGLES OF REFLECTED LIGHT Come quando da l’acqua o da lo specchio Salta lo raggio a l’opposita parte, Salendo su per lo modo parecchio A quel che scende, e tanto si diparte dal cader de la pietra in igual tratta, Sì come mostra esperïenza e arte : Così mi parve da luce rifratta (15.16-24) As when from water or a mirror the ray jumps toward the opposite direction, rising in the same manner as its descent, departing from the fall of a stone by an equal angle, as experience and science show, so it seemed that I was being struck by light refracted there ahead of me 8

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
