Light reflection

Law of reflection


This simulation studies the relationship between the angle of incidence and the angle of reflection when a beam of light strikes a reflecting surface.

Reflection of a candle on a mirror


This simulation allows us to observe the reflection of a candle in a mirror and how the image looks to the eye. Drag the candle and check the results.

Fiber optic cable


This simulation allows us to change the thickness and shape of a fiber optic cable and observe the reflection of light inside it.

Multiple reflections


This simulation allows us to see how different images are generated by multiple reflections. Change the angle between the mirrors and click on each of the orange dots to observe the process.

Reflection and refraction lab


Explore the bending of light between two media with different refractive indices. See how changing from air to water to glass changes the angle of reflection. Play with prisms of different shapes and create a rainbow.
