Question 4.
State the characteristics of the image formed by a plane mirror.
Answer:

  1. The image formed by a plane minor is erect and virtual.
  2. The image is of the same size as that of the object.
  3. The distance of the image from the mirror is the same as the distance between the mirror and object.

Question 5.
Find out the letters of the English alphabet or any other language known to you in which the image formed in a plane mirror appears exactly like the letter itself. Discuss your findings.
Answer:
The letters of the English alphabet A, H, 1, M, O, T, U, V, W, X, Y would form images that exactly look like the original letters when kept in front of a plane mirror. These letters have a vertical line of symmetry. Hence, if we divide them in the middle, we would find that the right halves are equivalent to the left halves of the letters.

Question 6.
What is the virtual image? Give one situation where a virtual image is formed.
Answer:
The image, which cannot be obtained on a screen is called a virtual image. The images formed by a plane mirror, convex mirror, and concave lens are virtual.

Question 7.
State two differences between a convex and a concave lens.
Answer:

Convex lens Concave lens
(a) It is thicker in the middle than the edges.
(b) It converges the light rays falling on it.
(a) It is thinner in the middle than the edges.
(b) It diverges the light rays falling on it.

Question 8.
Give one use each of a concave and a convex mirror.
Answer:
Concave mirror: It is used by dentists to see an enlarged image of the teeth.
Convex mirror: It is used as a side-view mirror of the car because it enables the drivers to view objects spread over a large area behind them.
