reflection and rays
The drawings show two arrows, A and B, that are located in front of a plane mirror. A person at point P is viewing the image of each arrow.
Which images can be seen in their entirety? Determine your answers by drawing a ray from the head and foot of each arrow that reflects from the mirror according to the law of reflection and reaches point P. Only if both rays reach point P after reflection can the image of that arrow be seen in its entirety.
so which one is correct?
image of A
image of B
or neither image
I would say image of A?
thanks for help on this one.
I've modified your images a little bit to show you how to find the rays.
