METHOD TO DISTINGUISH BETWEEN A PLANE MIRROR, A CONCAVE MIRROR AND A CONVEX MIRROR WITHOUT TOUCHING THEM


       To distinguish between a plane mirror, a concave mirror and a convex mirror without touching it, bring each mirror near to your face one by one and note the change in size of the image formed. There can be following three cases.

       Case 1 : In plane mirror, if the object is upright, the image is also upright, of same size and does not change in size by moving the mirror towards or away from the face.
