What Is The Difference Between a Lens & A Mirror?
A lens is an optical device that focuses light on a crucial point through refraction. There are specialcoatings and shapes of lenses that can be used to create a compound optical device. Whereas amirror is a reflective surface that tries to preserve the detailed characteristics for the original light.
Are There Limitations Using Shaped Mirrors?
This is normally found on mirrors hanging on the walls with or without frames and glass tops. Normally on a glass top, there is not full support underneath the glass. So the bevel can be seen.
How Are Mirrors Made?
Mirrors are made by placing a very thin and smooth layer of silver on a piece of glass. The layer stops light from passing by and this is where the reflection takes place and this allows us to see ourselves in the mirror. This idea was thought up by Justus Von Leibig almost 200 years ago in Germany.
