Question

A ray of light strikes a plane mirror such that its angle of incidence is 30°. What angle does the reflected ray make with the mirror surface?

Solution

The reflected ray makes an angle of 60o with the mirror surface because:
 angle of incidence = angle of reflection = 30o,  and
 angle of the reflected ray with the mirror surface = 90o - angle of reflection = 90o - 30o = 60o

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
