if a plane mirror shifts through a distance of 5 cm towards an object and object shifts through 10 cm towards the mirror then find the shift in the position of an image?

15cm

In the case of plane mirror the image distance is always equal to the object distance. let the initial position of object from mirror be x. then distance btwn mirror and object is 2x the mirror is shifted towards object by 5cm, and then object is shifted 15cm towards the mirror, total shifting=20cm towards mirror.

as image dis=obj distance

both will shift 20cm towards the mirror.(image as well as object)

Let the initial distance between the object and mirror be x.the mirror moves towards the object by 5cm. So the new distance between the object and mirror is x-5 . so object moves towards mirror by 10 cm.so new distance is x-5-10 or x-15.therefore the image object distance is x-15.so the image shifts by 15cm.
