Subject: Science , asked on 9/2/11

 Differentiate between regular and diffused reflection. Does diffused reflection mean the failure of the laws of reflection?

Hi Revanth!

When light rays fall on rough surfaces, the reflected rays will travel in different directions. This type of reflection is known as irregular or diffused reflection. We see objects due to the irregular reflection of light fall on them. If the reflected rays are parallel, then the reflection is known as regular or specular reflection.

The diffused reflection does not obey the laws of reflection.
