How do mirrors work

Mirrors work by the reflection of light. When light rays hit a smooth, polished surface, they bounce off in a way that creates an image by preserving the angles between the reflected rays, allowing us to see ourselves or other objects in the mirror.



1. What law explains how mirrors reflect light?

A) Law of Refraction
B) Law of Reflection
C) Law of Conservation of Energy
D) Law of Relativity


2. What happens to light when it hits a mirror?

A) It gets absorbed
B) It passes through
C) It bends
D) It reflects


3. What type of mirror can magnify objects?

A) Flat mirror
B) Concave mirror
C) Convex mirror
D) Transparent mirror


4. Why do we see our reflection upside down in a spoon?

A) Because of the spoon’s flat surface
B) Because of the spoon’s concave surface
C) Because of the spoon’s convex surface
D) Because of the spoon’s material


5. What is the focal point of a mirror?

A) The point where light rays meet after reflection
B) The center of the mirror
C) The edge of the mirror
D) The point where light rays diverge
