1) A light ray is incident on a reflecting surface. If the light ray makes a 25° angle with respect to the normal to the surface, what is the exact angle (in degrees) made by the reflected ray relative to the normal?

2) The light ray that makes the angle θ1' is the refracted ray (true or false?)

3) True or False: The Law of Reflection can be used to show how an image appears behind a mirror and it can also be used to determine where the image will be located.

4) Snell's law is another name for the
