How does a mirror affect the path of light?
Light rays change direction when they hit a mirror.
Light rays travel in a direction parallel to a mirror.
Light rays strike a mirror in a perpendicular direction.
Light rays approach a mirror in a straight line and then reverse direction.
I hope this help!!
Light rays change direction when they hit a mirror. The phenomenon is known as reflection. Light rays travels in a straight light. They strike the surface of the mirror at a particular angle called incident angle. It is the angle between the ray and normal at the point of contact. The rays leaves the surface making the same angle with the normal called reflection angle but in different direction.
