angle of reflection
The angle of reflection is the angle at which a ray of light leaves a reflecting surface. The angle is measured between the reflected ray and the normal – the line at right-angles to the surface where the ray leaves it. For a plane mirror, the angle of reflection is equal to the angle of incidence.
