Flat mirror, tilted, ray diagram
How do you draw the ray diagram for a flat mirror which has been tilted, an object and an observer, as below:
The way to draw the ray diagram for this situation is to carry out the three stages as we have previously learnt as follows:
The first stage is to draw an image behind the mirror by marking either end of the image as being equal-distance and perpendicular (at 90°) from the mirror.
Behind the mirror
The same size
You should end up with the following diagram:
The second stage is to draw rays from the eye to the top of the image and bottom of the image as follows:
The third stage is to join the light rays from the mirror to the object.
Notice how the image is
Same size as the object
Virtual (can not be shown on a screen)
As far behind the mirror as the object is in front.
