Exit Ticket: Match the following concepts

1.Reflection:

2. Refraction:

3. Diffraction:

4. Diffuse Reflection:

a. involves a change in the direction of waves as they pass from one medium to another.

b. involves a change in direction of waves as they pass through an opening or around a barrier in their path.

c. involves a change in direction of waves when they bounce off a barrier

d. When light is incident on a rough surface, it is reflected in many directions.
