P: 751

I have an incident laser beam shot at a flat mirror with normal vector n. The beam is coming at it with a direction I. I want to find the vector P which is what the reflected beam is heading out from.
Edit: I figured it out, sorry for the post. For the record, you take the component of I along the normal vector and reflect it (switch its heading) and the rest of it is the same.
