Statement of a problem № 41554


The distance of a lightbulb from a large plane mirror is twice the distance of a person from the plane mirror. Light from the bulb reaches the person by two paths. It travels to the mirror at an angle of incidence θ, and reflects from the mirror to the person. It also travels directly to the person without reflecting off the mirror. The total distance traveled by the light in the first case is twice the distance traveled by the light in the second case. Find the value of the angle θ.
