Why is the magnification in a plane mirror considered to be 1, and not 0?
Asked by | 13th Nov, 2008, 09:29: PM
Magnification = height of the image / height of the object
Magnification = 1 implies that they both are equal as we have in the mirrors that we use at homes.Magnification of mirror = 0 would imply that height of image = 0 thus no image at all.
