The following diagram shows the properties of specular reflection. Scroll down the page for more examples and solutions for specular reflection and diffuse reflection.
In specular reflection, the angle of the incident ray is equal to the angle of the reflected ray. Specular reflection is also known as mirror-like reflection.
If the reflecting surface is irregular it will create diffuse reflection, rather than specular reflection.
