Hi friends,

Imagine you are stading in front of a mirror,facing it .Rise your left hand. Rise your right hand . Look at your reflection when you rise your left hand your reflection raises what appear to be his right hand .But when you tilt your head up, your reflection does too, and does not appear to tilt his/her head down. Why is it that the mirror to reverse left and right not up and down?

Mirror isn't 'reversing' the image; its just reflecting light in straight lines. That's why it doesn't flip images vertically.

You are absolutely right biggi, A mirror image is a reflected duplication that appears identical but in reverse. As an optical effect it results from reflection off of substances such as a mirror or water.
