    Refraction depends upon refractive index of the body through which light travels.
    What is the factor on which reflection depends upon.
    I also want to confirm whether mirrors are painted silver from one side and black on another side.

    I think reflection depends on albedo? Or is that just a measure of the reflection? Maybe someone else will have better insight.

    Materials have a property called 'Reflection Coefficient' the european forehead is 0.35 average - odd the things you remember from uni...
    Still you'd best get it from wiki, I might mis-remember something important.
