Question 3. Which type of spherical mirror is used as reflectors at sharp turns or blind corners in big shopping malls or as rear-view mirrors in cars?  [2 MARKS]

Reason : 1 Mark

Convex mirror is used as reflectors at sharp turns or blind corners.

Convex mirrors are also known as converging mirror. Because of this the image formed by the mirror is a converged image of numerous objects. This gives the driver a larger field of vision thus, helping them take well-informed decisions.
Question 4. Find out the letters of the English alphabet in which the image formed by a plane mirror appears exactly like the letter itself. Discuss your findings. [2 MARKS]

: Explanation: 2 Marks

If the letters of English alphabet A, H, I, M, O, T, U, V, W, X, Y are kept in front of a plane mirror, then they would form images which exactly look like the original letters of the alphabet. These letters are vertically symmetric. For example, if we divide letters A and U in the middle, then we would find that the right halves are equivalent to the left halves of the letters.

Hence, even if the image interchanges sidewise, it will appear same as the letter.
Question 5. (a) While standing before a plane mirror, if you move your right hand to the right, which hand does your image move?

(b)
What is the angle of incidence of a ray if the reflected ray is at an angle of 90 to the incident ray?

[3 MARKS]

(b) Answer with explanation: 1.5 Marks

(a) A mirror image formed by a plane mirror is identical in size and shape but is laterally inverted.
If we move our right hand to the right, our image will move the left hand towards the left. It is because in a plane mirror our "left appears right” and "right appears left”. This is called a lateral inversion.

(b) According to the law of reflection, the angle ofincidence is equal to the angle of reflection. I
f the reflected ray is at an angle of 90 to the incident ray, it implies that the reflected ray will be making an angle of 45 from the normal. Hence, the angle of reflection is45, therefore the angle of incidence of the ray is45 according to the law of reflection.
