In this regard, what is a virtual image lenses?
Virtual Image Formation A virtual image is formed at the position where the paths of the principal rays cross when projected backward from their paths beyond the lens. An enlarged virtual image can be formed by a positive lens by placing the object inside the principal focal point.
Furthermore, what is the difference between a real image and a virtual image? The following are the differences between a real image and virtual image: A real image is formed when the rays of light after reflection or refraction actually meet at some point whereas a virtual image is formed when the rays of light after reflection or refraction appear to meet at a point.
People also ask, what is a real image and a virtual image?
A real image occurs where rays converge, whereas a virtual image occurs where rays only appear to diverge. Real images can be produced by concave mirrors and converging lenses, only if the object is placed further away from the mirror/lens than the focal point, and this real image is inverted.
What is an example of a virtual image?
A virtual image is that image which is formed when the light rays coming from an object do not actually meet, but appear to meet when produced backwards. These images cannot be obtained on the screen. The common example of virtual image is the image formed in the mirror when we stand in front of that mirror.
