Question

Both a mirror and a page of this book reflect light. You can see an image in a mirror but not in the book. Explain.


Solution

The reflection from a mirror is regular reflection, whereas the reflection from a page of the book is diffused reflection. Regular reflection allows us to see our image, whereas diffused reflection allows us to see the object on which the light falls.
Therefore, we cannot see our image in the page of the book.
