Solution

Four characteristics of the images formed by plane mirrors are as follows:-

1. The images are of the same size as that of the objects.

2. The images are formed behind the mirrors at the same distance from the mirrors as that of the objects.

3. The images formed are virtual and erect.

4. The images are laterally inverted.
