what will be the ray diagram to show the image formed by a plane mirror?

Expert Answer:

Dear student

The following rays are usually considered while constructing ray diagrams:

  • A ray of light incident on a plane mirror at 90 degree gets reflected from the mirror along the same path.
  • A ray of light falling on a plane mirror at any angle gets reflected from the mirror such that the angle of incidence is equal to the angle of reflection.
    The image is formed at a point where the reflected rays appear to meet.
WE hope this clarifies your doubt.
