One last question, How is refraction different from reflection? The angle of reflection is always equal to the angle of incidence. Light travels at a different speed after it is reflected. Refraction occurs only within the same medium. The angle of reflection is measured from the flat surface rather than from the normal.

from prior knowledge i think A is true, however not sure if it actually answers the question

\(\color{#0cbb34}{\text{Originally Posted by}}\) @jennylove from prior knowledge i think A is true, however not sure if it actually answers the question \(\color{#0cbb34}{\text{End of Quote}}\) I suppose it's correct, because reflection only depends on angle of incidence. For refraction, refractive indices are in the equation.

justjm:

B is incorrect because the speed of light is dependent on wavelength and frequency. C is incorrect as refraction occurs at the interface of media D is incorrect because...curved mirrors kind of disprove this statement.

Wow thank you for explaining each! That makes complete sense ! Thanks again !
