Light and Reflection

Preface

Light is important to all of us. Everything we see, we see due to light. Every object, every shadow, every image, all possible through light. But how? How are images formed? What are shadows? Why can we see ourselves in a mirror? Why do things look weird when using a spoon as a mirror? These are fundamental questions that one should be able to answer. The document gives a clear and fundamental understanding of light and reflection, right from the basics
