Mirrors and Ray Diagrams for High School Science

This simulation allows you to manipulate objects in front of plane, convex and concave mirrors, to see the resulting ray diagrams and images.

- Use the selector in the top left to change modes.
- Camera can be translate and zoomed by dragging and pinching.

PLANE mode:
- drag the arrow by the center
- rotate the arrow by either end

CONCAVE/CONVEX mode:
- drag the object by the top of the arrow
- move the mirrors by dragging their centers
- use the buttons to show rays, and a coin instead of an arrow
- change the focal length of the mirror with the curvature slider

REAL mode:
- use the button in the top right to switch objects between ray box, bulb, and triangle
- the objects can be dragged
- the bulb can be placed at the focal point of the mirror for parallel reflections
- the mirror can be rotated around to use the convex side
- the triangle object can be used to see how images would actually look in the mirrors
