so what i have is 2 objects. one is stationary other is moving and colliding with that object. i have the normal of the face on the stationary object which the first object collided with, and i have the motion vector of the moving object. what i want to do is reverse my motion vector and flip it over the collision normal, which would cuse it to reflect. right? so how would i go about doing this...

If you want to reflect a vector off a surface:

R = V - 2*(V.N) * N;

Where V is the vector, N is the surface normal and ''.'' is the dot product. Hope this helps...
