# Show that for a flat mirror hi= ho, knowing that the image is a distance behind the mirror equal in magnitude to the distance of the object from the mirror.

To determine

To prove:

The height of the object is equal to the height of the image for a flat mirror.

Explanation

Given info:

Distance of image behind the mirror is equal to distance of object from the mirror.

Formula used:

Formula for magnification is,

â€ƒâ€ƒm=hiho=âˆ’dido .... (1)

Here,

• m is the magnification.
• hi is the height of the image.
• ho is the height of object.
• d0 is the object distance.
• di is the image distance
