Mirror Symmetry


LearnNext Lesson Video

The line of symmetry is related to mirror reflection. An object and its mirror image are equal in shape and size.

Mirror line
An object and its image are always at the same distance from the surface of a mirror, which is called the mirror line.

The left and the right sides of an object appear inverted in a mirror. An object and its image show mirror symmetry, with the mirror line being the line of symmetry. A kaleidoscope uses mirrors to produceimages that have several lines of symmetry

Letters written from right to left, appear written from left to right in their mirror image. The letters A, H, I, M, O, T, U, V, W, X and Y appear the same in their mirror image.

All the other letters of the alphabet appear reversed in their mirror image. Symmetry has plenty of applications in real life, as in art, architecture, textile designing, geometrical reasoning, kolams, rangoli, etc.


1 . what r the uses of symmetry in our daily life

In mathematics, if we rotate an object iot does not get changed. Even after reflection the object remains invariant. Symmetry in everyday
