You get to witness the formation of images by different types of mirrors in an interactive experimental environment.
After completing this tutorial, you will be able to complete the following:
How do plane mirrors allow people to see images?
~ When an object is placed in front of a plane mirror, light bounces off the object and is reflected in the mirror. This allows us to see the reflection of the object in the mirror.
Why are plane mirrors not suitable for magnification or minimization?
~ Plane mirrors are not suitable for magnification or minimization because the height of the image is equal to the object's height.
Why does writing appear backward in a plane mirror?
~ Writing appears backward in a plane mirror because the object and the image in the mirror are symmetrical to each other, causing a left-right reversal.
How can you find the eye's visual range on a plane mirror?
~ You can find the eye's visual range on a plane mirror by drawing lines to the mirror's edges and reflecting the lines.
