Lesson Worksheet: Mirrors Science

In this worksheet, we will practice describing the image of an object that is formed by a plane mirror.

Q1:

Light from an object is reflected by a plane mirror. The mirror produces an image of the object. Which of the following correctly describes how the sizes of the object and its image compare?

  • AThe image is larger than the object.
  • BThe image is the same size as the object.
  • CThe image is smaller than the object.

Q2:

An object is located in front of a plane mirror. Light from the object is reflected by the plane mirror that produces an image of the object. Which of the following correctly describes where the image appears to be?

  • ABehind the mirror
  • BIn front of the mirror
  • CAt the position of the mirror

Q3:

An object is located 1 meter in front of a plane mirror. Light from the object is reflected by the plane mirror that produces an image of the object. Which of the following correctly describes how far behind the mirror the image appears to be?

  • ALess than 1 meter
  • B1 meter
  • CMore than 1 meter

Q4:

Which of the mirrors shown is a plane mirror?

  • AMirror A
  • BMirror B

Q5:

An object in a room is located in front of a plane mirror that is on one of the walls of the room. Light from the object is reflected by the plane mirror, which produces an image of the object. Is the image of the object visible on the wall opposite the wall containing the mirror? This wall is shaded green in the following figure.

  • AYes
  • BNo

Q6:

Light from an object is reflected by a plane mirror. The shaded side of the object is marked with a symbol. The mirror produces an image of the object, as shown in the following figure.

Which of the following figures correctly shows the object if it is rotated so that the shaded side of it faces away from the mirror? The base of the object remains in contact with the surface that it initially rests on while the object is rotated.

  • A
  • B

Q7:

Light from an object is reflected by a plane mirror. The mirror produces an image of the object. Which of the following figures correctly shows the image and the object?

  • A
  • B

Q8:

Light from an object is reflected by a plane mirror. The mirror produces an image of the object. Which of the following figures correctly shows the image and the object?

  • A
  • B

Q9:

Light from an object is reflected by a plane mirror. The shaded side of the object is marked with a symbol. The mirror produces an image of the object. Which of the following figures correctly shows the image and the object?

  • A
  • B

Q10:

Does the following figure correctly show the reflection of light rays from a plane mirror producing an image of the object in front of the mirror?

  • AYes
  • BNo
