What is the focal length of a plane mirror?

The focal length of the plane mirror is infinite.

The reason why a plane mirror has an infinite focal length is that the plane mirror can be considered as a spherical mirror with infinite radius of curvature. We know that focal length is the half of the radius of curvature. Therefore, it can be concluded that the focal length of the plane mirror is infinite.
