However, if you look at a glancing angle to the surface of the water, you will see a reflection of the bottom of the pool. What caused this to happen? 1. total internal reflection correct 2. None of these 3. to reflection 4. refraction Explanation: You are witnessing total internal reflection. Rays coming from the bottom of the pool that form a large enough angle with the perpendic- ular will be reflected back into the medium.
