Research- Reflection of the Light & Optical Illusion


Reflection of the Light

A reflection appears to be the same distance from the “other side” of the mirror as the viewer’s eyes are from the mirror. Also, when light is reflected from a mirror, it bounces off at the same angle in the opposite direction from which it hit. For example, if the light hits a flat or “plane mirror” at a 30-degree angle from the left, it will bounce off at a 30-degree angle to the right.


Optical Illusion

An illusion is an inaccurate perception of a stimulus. The term is also broadly used to refer to inaccurate beliefs or perceptions. In scientific usage, however, an illusion is a sensory distortion. When an image is constructed in such a way that it relays misleading information to the brain.
