Determine the angle of incidence, Physics

A ray of light XY strikes a surface of a mirror ABCD at point P.

a)  Determine the path of the incident ray X-Y-P and the reflected ray P-Z and show this path in all views. (Hint: The incident ray, the reflected ray, and the normal lay are in the same plane.)

b)  Determine the angle of incidence θ1 and the angle of reflection θ2. (Hint: The angle of reflection of the ray is measured from the normal to the plane and is equal to the angle of incidence.)

c)  Determine the azimuth of the incident ray and the azimuth of the reflected ray. (Hint: The azimuth is measured always in the top view).


1. Label all views and view elements clearly.

2. Provide numerical answers to the problem in the designated area.

3. Use appropriate layers.

4. Show all projection lines.
