Activity Description:

Reverse image through mirror in Reflection of Light - Class 7 Science Experiment

The experiment aims to observe the reflection of light using a stainless steel spoon. The curved and shiny surfaces on either side of the spoon act as mirrors, allowing us to see reversed images.

Required Items:

  1. Stainless steel spoon

Step by Step Procedure:

  1. Find a well-lit area to conduct the experiment.
  2. Hold the stainless steel spoon in your hand, with the curved side facing outward.
  3. Look at your face or any object of interest on the curved, outer surface of the spoon.

Experiment Observations:

  • Image on the Outer Portion of the Spoon: When you look at the curved, outer surface of the spoon, you will see a reflected image that appears to be reversed horizontally (left and right are switched).
  • Image on the Inner Portion of the Spoon: Now, shift your focus to the inner curved surface of the spoon (the side facing you while you hold it). You will notice another reflected image, but this time it appears normal, without any reversal.


  1. Be cautious while handling the stainless steel spoon to avoid any injuries.
  2. Conduct the experiment in a well-lit area to ensure clear observations.

Lesson Learnt from Experiment:

This experiment demonstrates the basic principles of reflection of light. The outer curved surface of the stainless steel spoon acts as a concave mirror, creating a horizontally reversed image, while the inner curved surface acts as a regular mirror, reflecting the image as it is.
