REAL image. If light rays diverge and as we extend back to meet at a point then the image would be termed as virtual.

Does concave lens produce a real image?

Because when you extend the light rays, they diverge and never meet. so you must always extend the light rays back behind the object, this will always result in the image being upright and erect. Meaning it will always be virtual, never real.


What are two lines that meet at a right angle?

Two lines that meet at a right angle are called perpendicular.Two lines that meet at a right angle are also called normal.Two lines that meet at a right angle are also called orthogonal.


What are the vertices of a shape?

A vertex is where two lines of the shape meet. For example, the three points on a triangle are called vertices.

Why did the left hand appear on the right in the perpendicular mirrors?

Clench your left hand and look in the mirror. Your head is directly in line with the head in the mirror. Your feet are directly opposite your feet in the mirror. Your clenched fist is directly opposite the fist in the mirror, your open hand is directly opposite the open hand in the mirror. If you put your fist to the mirror, the image puts its fist out to meet it. You would be surprised if it moved the other hand instead. Comments: I think the question meant "in the plane mirrors". Plane mirrors are flat mirrors. Also, the answer is not complete: 1) the mirror does reverse the object, but only in the direction perpendicular to the mirror surface. That information is in the answer, but it's not made very clear. 2) The image does seem to be left right reversed, despite this. This is because of the "psychology of visual perception", and not "physics". We find it hard to "see" our image as reversed front to back. So that means we perceive the image as reversed left to right, with front and back unchanged.

When is the image said to be real or virtual image?

An image is called real if the light rays coming from a point(point on object) meet at a point after reflection or refraction. An image is virtual if the light rays do not actually meet after reflection or refraction. These rays appear to come from a point which is the point where we say virtual image is formed.


How are virtual images and real images different?

A virtual image is a copy of an object formed at the location from which the light rays appear to come. Whereas a real image is a copy of an object formed at the point where the light rays actually meet.


How does an image form on lenses?

Images are formed when rays of light meet. If rays are refracted by different amounts as they pass through different parts of the lens, they may be brought to a focus - or meet and pass through one point. This is where the image is formed.


What is virtual and real image?

A real image in produced by the actual intersection of the reflected rays . Whereas a virtual image is formed when the reflected rays meet after they are produced backwards.


What can be said about how real images are formed?

plane & concave Mirrors create them they are formed when rays actually meet


When two line segment meet at a point an is formed and the point where is called the?

How do you determine virtual and real images?

A virtual image is formed when the reflected rays meet after they are produced backwards. Whereas a real image in produced by the actual intersection of the reflected rays.


What is real image?

A real image is formed when the reflected or refracted beams of light meet directly. lxExl


The image formed by convex spherical mirror will always be?

the image will always be diminished and will be of small size. it is so because the rays get diverged from lens and rays appear to meet (vitually) at the focus.

What is difference between Real image and 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.
