# What is an incident ray?

An incident ray is a ray of light that strikes a surface. The angle between this ray and the perpendicular or normal to the surface is the angle of incidence.

The incident ray, the normal and the reflected ray lie in the same plane.

This is one of the laws of reflection.

Another law of reflection states that the angle of incidence and the angle of reflection are equal.
