# Which type of mirror produces an image that is always erect of the same height and virtual?

Plane mirrors

Click to read further detail. In this manner, which type of mirror produces images that are always upright?

Proof of the different kinds of images for each type of mirror. A plane mirror always produced a virtual, upright image that is the same size as the object. A convex mirror always produced a virtual, upright, and reduced image.

Beside above, what type of mirror produces a virtual image? Plane mirrors and convex mirrors only produce virtual images. Only a concave mirror is capable of producing a real image and this only occurs if the object is located a distance greater than a focal length from the mirror’s surface.

Additionally, which image is always erect?

The virtual image is always erect. The common example of virtual image is the image formed in the mirror when we stand in front of that mirror. A realimage is that image which is formed when the light rays coming from an object actually meet each other after reflection or refraction.

## Do concave mirrors make images bigger or smaller?

A plane mirror will always produce an upright image. A concave mirror will only produce an upright image if the object is located in front of the focal point. Real images can be larger than the object, smaller than the object, or the same size as the object.

Can a convex mirror produce a real image?

convex mirrors can produce real images as well. If the object is virtual, i.e., if the light rays converging at a point behind a plane mirror (or a convex mirror) are reflected to a point on a screen placed in front of the mirror, then a real image will be formed.

### What are some examples of concave mirrors?

The examples of concave mirrors are the mirrors used in automobile head lights, reflecting telescopes, torch lights, etc.

### Can we see real image in concave mirror?

A real image occurs where rays converge, whereas a virtual image occurs where rays only appear to diverge. Real images can be produced by concave mirrors and converging lenses, only if the object is placed further away from the mirror/lens than the focal point, and this real image is inverted.

### What is the magnification of convex mirror?

If an object is placed at a distance of 20cm from the pole of a concave mirror, the magnification of its real image is 3. If the object is moved away from the mirror by 10cm, then the magnification is -1.

### What type of image is formed by convex mirrors?

The image formed in a convex mirror is always virtual and erect, whatever be the position of the object. In this section, let us look at the types of images formed by a convex mirror. When an object is placed at infinity, a virtual image is formed at the focus.

### Can a real image ever be an erect image?

A real image can be captured on a screen and is formed by a concave mirror and convex lens. When they appear to meet at a point(the rays of light), it forms a virtual image and a virtual image is ALWAYS erect. It is formed by concave mirrors too but ONLY at certain positions of the object.

### What is erect image with example?

An erect image is formed when both rays intersect each other at a certain point. It is an image in which directions are the same as those in the object, in contrast to an inverted image. A common example of an erect image is the image of a person in a standard plane mirror.

### Which type of image can form a real image?

A real image occurs where rays converge, whereas a virtual image occurs where rays only appear to diverge. Real images can be produced by concave mirrors and converging lenses, only if the object is placed further away from the mirror/lens than the focal point, and this real image is inverted.

### Why is real image inverted?

Originally Answered: Why are real images always inverted? Since rays are only converged by a concave mirror or a convex lens towards their center, rays can only meet below the X-axis if the object is above the X-axis, hence real image is formed inverted in all planes with respect to the object.

### What is real and virtual image?

A real image occurs where rays converge, whereas a virtual image occurs where rays only appear to diverge. Real images can be produced by concave mirrors and converging lenses, only if the object is placed further away from the mirror/lens than the focal point, and this real image is inverted.

### What is an example of a virtual image?

The best example of a virtual image is your reflection in the mirror. Real images are produced by intersecting rays while virtual images are produced by diverging rays. Real images can be projected on a screen while virtual ones cannot. Real images are formed by two opposite lens, concave and convex.

### What is enlarged image?

If you take a photograph that has the set pixel size of your camera and print a 12″ x 10″ version that is an enlargement. If you photograph an object such that it is the same size in the photograph, for example 1″ long, it has been recorded at 1:1 i.e. life-size.
