written by Michael Davidson
published by the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory
This item is an interactive tutorial on the topic of light reflection.  It integrates background information with related Java simulations that allow users to explore the Law of Reflection, reflection from smooth and rough surfaces, concave and convex mirrors, faceted diamond reflection, and total internal reflection (TIR).  This resource is appropriate as content support for K-12 science teachers and/or students in an introductory physics class.  

This item is part of a much larger collection of materials on optics and microscopy developed by the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory at Florida State University.

Please note that this resource requires Java.
