-- Light has to shine on the object, and some of it has to reflect off of the object.

-- Some of the reflected light has to make it to the mirror. There can't be any

physical obstruction in the path.

-- The mirror has to be clean enough so that some of the light hitting the mirror

is reflected away from it.

-- Your eye has to be on the path taken by the light after it reflects from the mirror.

Is it possible to find whether a mirror is plane concave or convex from the nature of image of an object?

Yes possible. If we place an object somehow close to the mirror and observe the image. If the image is of the same size as that of the object then it is a PLANE mirror If the image is magnified and erect, then it will be a concave mirror If the image is dimisnished then the mirror is convex in nature.


What are the 5 Properties of an image in a plane mirror?

Characteristics of an image formed by the plane mirror are :- * Virtual and erect (up right ) . * The image is of same size as that of the object . *The image is far behind the mirror as the object is in front of it . *The image is laterally inverted .


An object 5 millimeter high is located 15 millimeter in front of a plane mirror How far from the mirror is the image located?

The distance between the object and mirror is 15 mm. The distance between the image and mirror is 15 mm. Therefore, the distance between the image and object is 15 mm plus 15 mm which equals 30 mm.


The image in a plane mirror an be upright or inverted depending on where the object is?

A plane mirror will always create an upright image of 1/2 scale.


How does the distance of the object compare with the distance of the image from the plane mirror?

The distance of the object from the mirror line should equal the distance of the image from the mirror line.


What is the object image distance relationship for a flat mirror?

when dealing with a flat mirror object-distance and image-distance should be equal.


How does image change in its size and location as the object comes nearer the concave mirror?

this will depend.


How can you create mirror image of a given object?

Put a mirror in front of it.


Describe the images formed in a concave mirror and in a convex mirror?

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 of the object at any distance in front of it. The image is located behind the mirror.


Why do images in a concave mirror appear inverted?

If an object's distance from the concave mirror is greater than the mirror's focal length, then the mirror image of it will be inverted. If the distance from the concave mirror is less than the focal length of the mirror, the image will not be inverted. No image will be produced if the distance from the mirror to the object is equal to the mirror's focal length.


How will you distinguish between plane mirror convex mirror and concave mirror without touching?

If the image is erect and equal in size and it does not change its size and nature on moving the mirror closer or away from the object, the mirror is plane mirror. If the image is erect and magnified and it becomes inverted on moving the mirror away from the object, the mirror is concave mirror. If the image is erect and diminished and remains erect on moving the mirror away from the object, the mirror is convex mirror.


What is the least possible vertical length of a mirror?

It depends completely on the object. The mirror has to be of at least half the height of the object. Otherwise there will be no image of the object on the mirror.
