Can you explain the reason behind it

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

the glass of water acts as a converging lens, which creates an inverted real image?

Yes @Aritra jana

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.

Wonderful it is...very cute.!

Due to cylindrical(curve) shape of water(thickness of glass neglected) image is inverted. Try a rectangular glass then arrows direction won't change!

Wow!! That is one of the beautiful reasons why i love science, lol!!

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.

It is due to water.water acts as a converging lens and form invertered image.

- 6 years, 8 months ago

It is due to water, as water acts as converging lens, which gives us an Inverted Real Image..........

- 6 years, 8 months ago

yes got it right

- 6 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

nice question

- 6 years, 8 months ago

when the water is filled in glass then it acts as a converging lens which makes real and inverted image

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!

internal total reflection

- 6 years, 8 months ago

After water is poured due to total internal reflection image is reversed

- 6 years, 8 months ago

When we add water, because of water reflection, the left arrow seems to be a right arrow.

On the right track just worded oddly.

Its a mirror
