OPTI 201R Fall 2010 25-2 Image Orientation : Figure 8.1 Point source reflection in the plane of incidence. Figure 8.2 Projection of a line object through a plane mirror. # Plane of incidence $ %&’ ()*+’ ,-+%*.+.+/ %&’ 0*1 *+2 %&’ +-03*) to the surface. # Raytracing using the Law of Reflection. # A' is a virtual image of A, and B' is a virtual image of B. ( the rays only appear to diverge from the image points.) # The image points are located an equal distance behind the mirror that their respective object points are in front of the mirror. # The line connecting object/image points is ! to the mirror.
