## Answer

###### 05/31/2009

n=(360/a) - 1 where n - the number of images; a- the angle between the mirrors. so : n=(360/45) - 1 n=8-1 n=7

### How many images will be formed when a candle is placed between two plane mirrors at 40 cm's apart?

The answer depends on the angle between the mirrors. The distance
between the mirrors does not, in theory, make any difference.
If the angle between the mirrors is x degrees, then the
theoretical number of images is (360/x)- 1 which is rounded down.
In practice, minor defects in the mirrors, refraction, total
internal refraction, absorptions, scattering etc will reduce the
number of images.

### What happens when two mirrors face each other in a certain angle?

Depending on the angle between them, you will get multiple
reflections of any object between the mirrors.
If the mirrors meet at an angle of x degrees, an object placed
between them should generate a maximum of (360/n) - 1 images.
Parallel mirrors should, on that basis, produce an infinite number
of images but because of microscopic flaws in the mirror,
absorption, internal refraction etc, the images will degrade more
or less exponentially.

### What is the formula to find number of images formed when two plane mirror are inclined at an angle?

The formula for finding this is : - n=360/x or n=360/x - 1,
where n is the no. of images, x is the angle of inclination between
the two mirrors & n is always an odd integer.
For example: if the angle between the two mirrors is 30 degrees,
n=360/30 - 1= 12-1 = 11

### How many images of a candle will be formed if it is is placed between two parallel mirrors separated by 40 cm?

In theory, there should be an infinite number. In practice,
though, the quality of the mirrors - the reflective surfaces as
well as the glass in front of them - will reduce that number.
The separation between the mirrors will also play a role by
dispersing light as it bounces back and forth between the
mirrors.
