Law of reflection

This interactive animation on the “law of reflection” illustrates the geometric relationships between the angle of incidence and the angle of reflection. Tip: You can use the mouse to move the spotlight. The gray dots are also adjustable. The animation shows a spotlight illuminating a surface. The shape of the surface, the position of the […]

Snellius Law of Refraction

The interactive animation depicts the geometric relationships between the angle of incidence and a light beams angle of refraction when passing through a transparent material (Snellius Refraction Law). To change the angle of incidence of the light beam, click on the top of the beam and move the mouse to the left or right. Alternatively, […]
