How Mirrors Work

  How mirrors work will be explained by the ray nature of light and how light reflects off of flat and curved surfaces to produce both real and virtual images.  To help you under stand, think of light as a ray, hence, "the ray nature of light".  These rays bounce off of a surface and we see they as an image.  Rays of light bounce differently when bouncing off of a plane (flat) mirror than they do when bouncing off of a concave or convex mirrors.  One is flat and the others are round.
