What is virtual image?

The virtual image is an image obtained from an optical system such that the light rays from the source do not cross to form an image. These light rays are obtained behind the mirror.

The image formed will be upright. For obtaining a virtual image either convex, concave, or a plane mirror is used for obtaining the virtual image and a diverging lens is used.
