Solution

## The correct option is B 10 m/sWe know that for fixed plane mirror, (1) Perpendicular to the mirror, vo=−vi (2) Parallel to the mirror, vo=vi This means that the magnitude of the velocity of the image is equal to the magnitude of the velocity of the object along the perpendicular and parallel to the mirror. Thus, the speed of image is equal to the speed of object because v=√v2⊥+v2∥ Hence, the speed of the image is 10 m/s.
