    • Enjoy the fun of physics with simulations
When you stand in front of two mirrors with an angle, do you know how many images will be formed and why it is formed.
This applet will show you the physics of image (multiple reflections from mirrors)

You can drag the arrow with mouse drag/drop and change the angle with slider. Have fun!
Click "initialize" button to view light traces!
