The results obtained in a Monte Carlo simulation of X-ray reflection from water show that for energies up to 20 keV, single and double reflected photons absolutely dominate. Analyzing in detail geometry of the collisions and corresponding energy relations we derive analytically the energy and angular distributions of reflected photons in double collision approximation. The results of the two approaches are compared and discussed.
