As shown in Figure3, light strikes a mirror and is reflected. Theoriginal ray is called the
, and after reflection, it is calledthe
. The angles of the incident and reflected rays arealways measured from the
. The normal is a line perpendicularto the surface at the point where the incident ray reflects. The incidentray, reflected ray, and normal all lie in the same plane perpendicular tothe reflecting surface, known as the
plane of incidence
. The anglemeasured from the incoming ray to the normal is termed the
