Q. Three plane mirrors are mounted on three walls forming an isosceles right triangle as shown in the figure. How many images are formed in all? Draw a diagram and indicate the positions of the images.

                         
 

Dear Student,

The number of images formed by this figure will be infinite because it is a closed structure and continuos reflection of light rays will result in formation of images.

Infinite number of images are formed between the three plane mirrors of same size.

You can experience the same when you go to a barber shop, where you have the similar constructions.
