Real and Virtual Images
- In optics, a picture is described as a collection of light ray focus points coming from an object.
- A virtual image is made up of focus points created by extending divergent rays, whereas a real image is made up of focus points created by converging rays.
- The virtual image, which can be obtained when the beams appear to diverge but do not actually converge, is an upright image.
- The virtual image is one that was created using an optical system where the light beams from the source did not collide to create the image. You can see these light rays by using a mirror.
Difference between Real and Virtual Images.
Real images are captured on screen and are inverted, but virtual images are not captured on screen and are always upright. The virtual image is created using an optical system where the light from the source does not collide for image creation.
