In the picture below I have a object at half the focus length. I know that the image will create a virtual image. However I was wondering if it was possible to create a real image as well like I have draw.
Secondly I want to clarify on the term real image. Real image means that when your eyes follow the rays it will direct you eyes to an object. In the situation below if we were to move the object to twice the focus length we would have a real image(according to professor). I don't quite understand how the image that is reflected inverted is a real image after all it is reflected by the mirror. Is it a real image because the screen itself is a real object where as with a flat mirror there is no physical object behind the mirror?
