Expert Answer:

Characteristics of image formed by a plane mirror are:

  1. The image formed in a plane mirror is virtual (or unreal). It cannot be obtained on a screen.
  2. The image formed in a plane mirror is at the same distance behind the mirror as the object is in front of it.
  3. The image in a plane mirror is of the same size as the object. It is neither enlarged nor diminished.
  4. The image in a plane mirror is erect. It is the same side up as the object.
  5. The image in a plane mirror is laterally inverted (sideways reversed) with respect to the object.
