    We will now learn about the formation of images in mirrors by the reflection of light from non- luminous objects.

    What is Reflection of light?

    It is the phenomenon where light strikes the surface of a non-luminous body and bounces off. In other words, luminous objects are a source of light and non-luminous objects provide a surface for reflection. This reflection of light helps us to see objects around us.

    How do we see non-luminous objects?

    When light reflects from the surface of a non-luminous object and enters our eye, we are able to see that object.

    This is why we cannot see a non-luminous object in a dark room as there is no source of light to reflect off the object and enter our eyes.

    Using the same principle, we can describe the formation of images in a mirror.
