Distinguish, differentiate, compare and explain what is the main difference Between Regular and Irregular Reflection in physics.
Difference Between Regular and Irregular Reflection
1. When all the reflected rays from a given smooth surface are parallel for parallel incident rays, the reflection is known as regular reflection. When for a given set of incident parallel rays, the reflected rays do not remain parallel to each other, the reflection is known as diffused or irregular reflection.
2. Regular reflection occurs from smooth surfaces like mirror, silver spoon etc. Irregular reflection occurs from rough surfaces like wood, table, door, book etc.
