the glass of water acts as a converging lens, which creates an inverted real image? Aritra Jana · 2 years, 8 months ago

Hmm... Water has been learning how to use PhotoShop? JK, obviously for such an image to appear, we'd need a converging lens, and I don't see anything else suspicious, so it must be the water. Robert Haywood · 2 years, 8 months ago

Due to cylindrical(curve) shape of water(thickness of glass neglected) image is inverted. Try a rectangular glass then arrows direction won't change! Krishna Sharma · 2 years, 8 months ago

Pysics... angle of incedence = angoe of reflection. The curved surface of the glass and the desnsity? Of water causes the light to bend more/differently then if it were traveling through air. Amanda Cabrera · 2 years, 8 months ago

Thought it was about refraction when I say the water, but well physics is wide. Try using a ray diagram, awesome isn't it? Now since it is a concave mirror, try a convex one, you will get another awesome result! Marc Vince Casimiro · 2 years, 7 months ago

when the water is filled in glass then it acts as a converging lens which makes real and inverted image Tushar Kaushik · 2 years, 8 months ago

When we filled water bcs of this the refractive index changes which act like a cylinderical lens and inverted image is formed Roshan Singh · 2 years, 8 months ago

It is due to water, as water acts as converging lens, which gives us an Inverted Real Image.......... Siddharth Tiwari · 2 years, 8 months ago

When we add water, because of water reflection, the left arrow seems to be a right arrow. Anuj Shikarkhane · 2 years, 8 months ago
