Bull's eye! (Posted on 2003-11-22) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Two points have polar coordinates as follows: θ=130,r=.35 (point A) and θ=70,r=.6 (point B). There is a surrounding circle, r=1, that acts as a mirror, and you wish to send a light ray from point A to point B by bouncing it once off the circle. What two alternative directions could you send it in (use an angular measure paralleling the θ coordinate it would have if directed from the origin)?
