Problem: Which of the following statements are true concerning the reflection of light? Check all that apply. a. For diffuse reflection, the angle of incidence is greater than the angle of reflection. b. The angle of incidence is equal to the angle of reflection only when a ray of light strikes a plane mirror. c. The reflection of light from a rough surface is called diffuse reflection. d. For specular reflection, the angle of incidence is less than the angle of reflection. e. The reflection of light from a smooth surface is called specular reflection.
