The radius of curvature of a plane mirror is infinity. A glass plate that is a few millimeters thick and extremely smooth makes up a plane mirror. Silvering refers to coating a surface of the glass with a thin layer of silver or another glossy, opaque substance.

Properties of the Image formed by Plane Mirror

• It creates a virtual image (which cannot be created on a screen and is not an actual interaction of light rays).
• Always establish a straight line (As in Plane Mirror head at top and feet at bottom)
• Image size is equal to object size and is laterally inverted (like an in-plane mirror). Your right seems left, while your left seems right.

Summary:

The radius of curvature of a plane mirror is? (a) zero, (b) infinity, (c) can be anywhere between zero and infinity, (d) None of the above

A planar mirror’s radius of curvature is infinite. The plane mirror’s radius of curvature is limitless since it is a component of an endlessly large spherical mirror.
