magnetic field
A magnetic field is the magnetic effect of electric currents and magnetic materials
reflection of waves
Reflection is the change in direction of a wavefront at an interface between two different media so that the wavefront returns into the medium from which it originated
resonance
In physics, resonance is a phenomenon in which a vibrating system or external force drives another system to oscillate with greater amplitude at a specific preferential frequency
opacity
Opacity is the measure of impenetrability to electromagnetic or other kinds of radiation, especially visible light
angle of incidence
In geometric optics, the angle of incidence is the angle between a ray incident on a surface and the line perpendicular to the surface at the point of incidence, called the normal
