III. Light is a form of energy which induces sensation of vision to our eyes. It becomes visible when it bounces off on surfaces and hits our eyes. The phenomenon of bouncing back of light rays in the same medium on striking a smooth surface is called reflection of light.

It takes place mostly in plane mirrors or highly polished metal surface. The mirror outside the driver side of a vehicle is usually a spherical mirror and printed on such a mirror is usually the warning ‘‘vehicles in this mirror are closer than they appear.’’
