Expert Answer:

Considering reflection, image formed at the same side of object is called the real image, and the image formed behind the polished surface is called virtual image. The major difference is that a real image can be obtained on a screen, while a virtual image cannot be obtained on a screen. A plane mirror always form virtual image.
