Is the image you see in a plane mirror a real image or a virtual image?
Image formed by a plane mirror is mostly virtual and erect.However, in case of a virtual object the mirror forms a real image.Also in case of water image where the water acts as a plane mirror the image formed is inverted.
"Real" and "virtual" are two opposite, mutually exclusive categories of images. An image is either one or the other, and no image can be both. The image produced by a plane mirror is a virtual one.
A plane mirror forms 1 virtual image and no real image. The virtual image is behind the mirror, at the same distance as the object in front of the mirror, erect, in mirror image left-right.
image in mirror cannot be touched,its nt real n virtual
NO doubt. It is VIRTUAL for real objects But it will be REAL for virtual objects.
No not possible. Only virtual image is produced.
All the rays reflected right from the plane mirror is always diverging. No chance of coverging. So no chance of getting real image. Only virtual image is possible.
Because the image is not real. The object is not really there, it's only virtual.
The image formed by a plane mirror is -- virtual (not a real image) -- erect -- same size as the object -- laterally inverted (left side appears right and right side appears left ) The virtual image is located -- the same distance behind the mirror as the object is in front of the mirror, and -- on a line from the object that is perpendicular to the mirror surface.
A plane (flat) mirror reflects an image which is the same size and shape, and colour as the object in front of the mirror. A concave mirror can produce a magnified image. If the image is in front of the mirror it is a real image; if behind it is a virtual (non-real) image. A real image can be cast upon a white the best) surface
No, a plane mirror can't produce a real image.
A plane mirror doesn't 'really' form an image at all. The image is 'virtual', not 'real'. You see what appears to be an image. It's located at the same distance behind the reflecting surface as the actual object is in front of it. If a real image exists, you can always put a piece of frosted glass, photo-film, or tissue paper where the image is, and capture it. You can't do that with a plane… Read More
A virtual image.
A concave mirror can show both vitual and real images, a plane mirror can show virtual and so can a convex mirror. 0.0
How can you get a real and a virtual image? A virtual and magnified image is got by a convex mirror.
No they are not, these images are always virtual, meaning that the light rays do not actually come from the image.
Wow! I guess we'd have to test that one. As soon as you find a virtual object to work with, you can count me in.
yeas is real image
How can you distinguish between a plane mirror concave mirror and a convex mirror by merely looking at the mirror?
If our image is real and inverted and smaller than the object ,then it is a concave mirror; if the image is virtual and erect and larger than the object,then it is a convex mirror; if the image is of the same size as of the object,it is a plane mirror. that is how we can distinguish or identify which of the given mirrors are what. BUT if the angle is very small you cannot… Read More
When diverging rays from a point source fall on the plane mirror, after reflection would once again diverge and never get a chance of converging. So any diverging rays cannot form a real image and they are considered to be coming from one point and that point is taken to be the virtual image.

never, image is virtual.
Virtual or real image... concave mirrors can form either virtual images or real images... i hope the answer would help you :)) Place the object closer to the mirror than its focal length.
No, to get a real image from a mirror it must be able to focus light (which flat mirrors can't do).
real and virtual images are formed by spherical mirror .
no it does not produce real image . it produce virtual and erect image
When the incident light rays are falling towards the mirror in such a way that the light rays after falling on the mirror meet at any point in front of the mirror than an image is formed in front of the mirror which can be taken on a screen and as the image can be taken on a screen it is known as a real image. So, plane mirrors can form real images.
No, it cannot.
No it can not. It would have to be concave or convex(not sure which). A real image would be if you looked at the mirror and on the wall next to you were projected.
In,optics real image is an image which is located in the plane of convergence for the light rays that originate from a given object.If a screen is placed in the plane of a real image the image will generally become visible on screen
A concave mirror forms real and virtual images according to the positions of the object in front of the mirror.When an object is placed between the pole and the principal focus of a concave mirror the formed will be virtual, erected and magnified. The virtual image formed by a concave mirror will always be erected.
Concave mirrors form both virtual and real image.
to see our face to make real image to make virtual image
Real image- They are formed by actual intersection of light rays. It is inverted. It can be projected on a screen. It is formed on the mirror. Virtual image- It is formed when rays appear to meet at a point. It is laterally inverted and erect. It cannot be projected on a screen. It is formed behind the mirror.
plane mirror forms laterral image of object while convex mirror forms real and inverted image of object
they are equidistant between the real and virtual image
Yes, but it can be hard to arrange. You need to set up a real image as a virtual object, and make the convex mirror image that. If the rays converge strongly enough, they will still converge after reflecting off the convex mirror.
(1)A plane mirror (2)A convex mirror (3)A concave lens
Here is a description of image formation in a concave mirror: if the object is beyond the center of curvature (F), the image formed is real and upside down; if the object is very near to the concave mirror, the image forms behind the mirror. It is virtual, upright, and bigger in size. Here is a description of image formation in a convex mirror: a convex mirror always produces a virtual, upright, and smaller image… Read More
An upright image, which is called a virtual image. If the focal point was outside of a concave mirror, then it would be a real image, which is inverted.
An virtual image is an image that is formed not by the intersection of two light beams, but it appears that these light beams intersect at some point. The optics of convex mirror doesn't allow the light beams to intersect at any position of object in relation to the mirror. Thus one can never get any real image using convex mirror
the image in the concave mirror will be real and inverted
Images in mirrors are virtual images.
No, because the image will always be on the opposite to the side where the reflected rays lie....
no,but if we make some changes it can be form real and inverted
Because the focal point of the convex mirror will always be at a 'virtual' place. Convex mirrors focus the image at a definite point.
The Acronym SALT When you describe the properties of an image, you need to examine four characteristics: 1. Size of the image (compared to the objesct:same size, smaller, or larger) 2. Attitude of an image( which way the image is oriented compared to the object:upright or inverted) 3. Location of the image 4. Type of image (real or virtual) A real image is an image formed when light is actually arriving at the image location… Read More
It gives an erect image and as the image is dimished it would cover a wide range. Though the image is virtual it could be seen by human eyes. Because of all these we use convex mirror as a rear view mirror in vehicles.
A real image is when the light rays form an image that is on the same side as the object that is being reflected. Meanwhile a virtual image is when the light rays appear to form an image. The real image will appear through the lens and be reflected on the other side while the virtual image will appear in the lens itself and will only reflect a blurry image through the lens.
