Re: Reflection

Hi;

Looks good. I never thought about the reflection off a curved surface like that and since I have no spoon that shiny I was never going to observe it. Thanks for the info.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.

Re: Reflection

Hi MathsIsFun,

Nice page. The law of reflection may be included.
