2 Light very often travels in straight lines. We represent light using rays, which are straight lines emanating from an object. This is an idealization, but is very useful for geometric optics . 32-1 The Ray Model of Light Law of reflection: the angle of reflection (that the ray makes with the normal to a surface) equals the angle of incidence. 32-2 Reflection; Image Formation by a Plane Mirror

3 With diffuse reflection, your eye sees reflected light at all angles. With specular reflection (from a mirror), your eye must be in the correct position. 32-2 Reflection; Image Formation by a Plane Mirror 32-2 Reflection; Image Formation by a Plane Mirror Example 32-1: Reflection from flat mirrors. Two flat mirrors are perpendicular to each other. An incoming beam of light makes an angle of 15° with the first mirror as shown. What angle will the outgoing beam make with the second mirror?
