What is Incident angle: Definition and 14 Discussions

High Incident was a professional wrestling live event produced by Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW) on October 26, 1996. The event was held in the ECW Arena in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in the United States. The title of the event referred to the main event: a scaffold match.
Excerpts from High Incident aired on the syndicated television show ECW Hardcore TV in October and November 1996. The bout between the Eliminators and the Miracle Violence Connection was included in the 2000 ECW compilation DVD ECW Extreme Evolution and the 2015 compilation DVD ECW Unreleased Vol. 3, while the scaffold match featured on the 1996 ECW compilation VHS Extreme Warfare Volume 2, the 2001 Pioneer Entertainment compilation DVD Hardcore History and the 2007 WWE compilation DVD ECW – Extreme Rules,.High Incident is best known for a highly controversial angle in which ECW World Heavyweight Champion the Sandman was "crucified" by the villainous stable Raven's Nest, who tied him to a cross using barbed wire. The religious imagery was considered offensive by some and the angle was never aired on television, with ECW issuing an apology. High Incident is also notable for the first appearance of Olympic medallist (and future Impact and WWE Hall of Famer) Kurt Angle in professional wrestling. Angle had considered wrestling for ECW but lost interest after seeing the "crucifixion"; he did not return to professional wrestling until signing with the World Wrestling Federation in 1998.

    I Tilted plane wave through a 2 lens system

    I have 2 lenses. L1 and L2 with focal lengths f1=910mm and f2=40mm, respectively. They are separated by a distance d=f1+f2. The magnification of the system is M1=-f2/f1=.044. If I have a normally incident, collimated beam pass through my system I will have a beam, parallel to the optic axis exit...

    Optics to act as a mirror or transparent medium depending on incident angle

    I am looking for an optical piece that can act as a mirror when the angle of incidence is close to normal (90 degrees) but acts as a see-through glass when the angle of incidence is less than 60 degrees? Alternatively it can be a filter placed in front of a mirror that passes a lot of light at...

    Calculating Incidence Angle for Tilted Plate and Light Source

    Homework Statement A plate is subjected to rays from a light source located 35 degrees above the horizon. The plate itself is tilted 12.5 degrees around its vertical axis reducing the exposure to the light source. Find the incidence angle between the light source and the front face of the...

    Exploring Reflection in a Plane Mirror

    1) If the angle of incidence of a ray of light to mirror is 50 degrees, what is the angle of reflection from the mirror? 2) If the angle of incidence of a ray of light to a mirror is 20 degrees, what angle does the light ray make with the mirror when it reflects? 3) If a ray of light makes an...

    Concave mirror: Reflected rays do not meet at one point

    I have drawn a diagram of the incident and reflected rays of an object by the concave mirror. Red color shows the incident rays, black color shows the normals drawn from the center of curvature, while green color shows the reflected rays. Shouldn't all the reflected rays meet at one point. Any...

    Dispersion of light through a prism and block, changing the incident angle

    There was a question in one of my study materials that asked if you increased the incident angle of white light striking the surface of a glass prism, would the colors disperse less or more. The answer was disperse more. I didn't have an answer because I saw a conflict between the two...

    Diffraction grating: arbitrary incident angle

    Diffraction on 1D grating is covered in many physics books. Usually they cover simple case when incident light is coming along the normal to the grating. Sometimes they present slightly more complicated case when incident light is tilted in the plane perpendicular to the stripes (left case on...

    Problem involving slits, diffraction, and incident angle.

    Hi. I am a bit confused with this question: A plane wave of 400-nm light is incident on a 25-µ(mu) m slit in a screen, as shown in the figure below. At what incident angle will the first null of the diffraction pattern be on a line perpendicular to the screen? (picture is attached). Do I...
