Homework Help: A conceptual question for optics-please help.

  1. Nov 22, 2011 #1
    I was wondering if for real images, do the objects and image always end up on the same side of a mirror/lens?

    If I am understanding your question properly, then no they do not have to exist on the same side. A convex lens will form a real image on the opposite side of the lens, relative to the object.
