Definitions for "Diffuse Reflection"
The reflection of a beam of light during which the light beam scatters in a wide range of directions, as described on this page of this module. Also called specular reflection, it occurs when light is reflected by a rough surface such as a classroom wall. Diffuse reflection is the opposite of total reflection, which is NOT the same as total internal reflection.
the reflection of rays from a rough surface. The reflected rays do not leave at set angles, so they are scattered
When light reflects in many different directions, after all the incident rays are parallel, or irregular reflection.
