The dictionary of the Royal Spanish Academy (RAE) mention several meanings of the word reflection , which comes from the Latin term thought. The first is associated with the verb reflect , which consists in analyzing something carefully.
For example: "I have not read the president's reflection on the Iranian attack", "It would be important for people to surrender to reflection before making hasty decisions that always lead to chaos.", "Without reflection, there can never be forgiveness".
For the philosophy , reflection is an activity that is carried out to have consideration of something , meditating and thinking about it.
Reflection, therefore, can be such thinking activity, but also its material expression . A letter or a journalistic note, in this sense, can be reflections.
Also in the field of sound we talk about reflection. In this specific case, this concept is synonymous with the process by which a wave can be reflected or absorbed. Some of these actions will be carried out by those who encounter an obstacle that is impossible to pass or surround.
In this cited field, the reflection is very much in relation to a series of elements that are what propitiate that action to have form and meaning. Thus, in particular we can expose that among those stand out both the echo and the so-called standing waves and the known phenomenon of reverberation.
Finally, it should be added that in the field of sound the aforementioned reflection is widely used in the development of musical events because thanks to it it is possible not only to isolate that one but also to correctly direct it towards the people who come to them.
In the physical On the other hand, reflection is a phenomenon which takes place when a light that has an impact on a certain material is reflected. This means that the reflection implies a modification in the direction of said light, since it returns to its environment.
Not only can light be reflected: water waves and the sound waves They are also able to produce this physical phenomenon.
In the same way we can also establish that reflection is a term that is used in the field of computer science to refer to the capacity of a specific programming language that allows you to not only observe but also carry out the modification of That is its high level structure.
Among these languages we find both C # and Python. These can thus find and also modify what are the various existing source code constructions. Specifically among them are protocols, code blocks or methods.
For the geometry Finally, the reflection consists in copying each of the points that form a figure to move them to another position, which maintains equidistance with a line that functions as a symmetric axis. At the end of the process, the result is an image that is identical to the first (from which your points have been copied and transferred).
