why do we see an inverted image on a spoon?

Expert Answer:

When the front side of the spoon is facing us, it is acting as a concave mirror.
The image in a concave mirror is upright and virtual when the object is inside the focal point. When the object is outside the focal point the image becomes a real image and it is inverted.
