Homework Help: Angle of incidence, reflection, and refraction

  1. May 9, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    What are the difference among angle of incidence, reflection, and refraction when light strikes two parallel surfaces?

    What does it mean "light is incident on film"?-is that the angle of incidence?

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I know how to find all of them, but I think I should know the difference-especially when they only ask for one. Thanks!
