Mirror and Water Image

Objective

·                     Students will learn how different objects are seen when they get reflected both in Mirror and in Water.

Introduction

The reflection of object into the mirror is called its mirror image. It is obtained by inverting an object laterally. If we combine the original figure and mirror image together they form symmetry.

Mirror Image

Mirror Images of Capital letters

The capital letters which have the same mirror images are:

A, H, I, M, O, T, U, V, W, X, Y

Mirror Images of Small letters

The small letters which have the same mirror images are:

i, l, o, v, w, x

Mirror Images of Numbers

0 and 8 numbers have the same mirror images.

Mirror Image of Clock Time

For mirror image of clock time, the given time shall be subtracted from 12.00 or 11.60.

Example 1:

What will be the mirror image of clock time 3:40?

Explanation:

By using simple trick

11:60

3: 40

8: 20

Water Images

Introduction

The reflection of an object into the water is called its water image. It is obtained by inverting an object vertically.

Technical Definition

In water image (horizontal), the LOWER and UPPER parts interchange positions and the LEFT and RIGHT parts remain constant.

Water Images of Capital Letters

Water Images of Small Letters

Water Images of Numbers

Water Images of Clock Time

For water image of clock time, the given time shall be subtracted from 18: 30.

Example 2:

What will be the water image of clock time 4: 20?

Explanation:

By using simple trick

18: 30

4: 20

14: 10

14: 10 means 2: 10

Points to be Remembered

There is a short trick which can be applied while doing this exercise.

Certain alphabets in capital form have the mirror image as well as the water image are the same.

They are

H         I           O      X

Some alphabets have similar water reflection i.e.

C    D    E    H    10    X

Two numbers 0 and 8 have their water images exactly the same.

The mirror image of number 6 is the same as the water image of number 9.
