The image formed by a plane mirror is the replica of the actual object. However, the image will be the virtual image which is formed where the light does not actually reach. Image formed by a plane mirror shows a left-right reversal which means that left side of the object appears as the right side in the mirror. The object distance and the image distance are equal in the plane mirror. Another significant feature of image formed by plane mirror is that it has the same dimensions as the actual object has. Moreover, plane mirrors form the image which has magnification equal to 1. Therefore, image formed by a plan mirror us virtual, left-right reversed, upright and equal in size.
