Ans2 Part 1: This part is plain geometry in Plane.

Angle IOP = POR When mirror rotates by angle theta, or POP IOP = P OR; Reflected light OR has changed angle to POR = POP + P OR = POP + IOP +POP ; So new ray has 2 POP greater than original angleIOP. Part 2: Time taken in travelling 2D @velocity c = 2D/c sec. Angle rotated by mirror in this duration= (2pi*v*2D)/c Then angle rotated by reflected light = 2(2pi*v*2D)/c
