From the mirror, It will appear as if the object has moved towards the glass block by t(1−1μ)=5(1−132)=53cm
So the apparent distance from the mirror will be 10+5−53=403cm
So image will form 403cm behind the mirror.
While looking at the image through the glass block from the opposite side of the mirror, it will again shift towards the mirror by 53cm
So the apparent distance will be 403−53=353cm
So, the distance of the final image with respect to the object is 15+353=803cm

An object is placed 20 cm in front of a plane mirror. The mirror is moved 2 cm towards the object. The distance between the positions of the original and final images seen in the mirror is : (a) 2 cm (b) 4 cm (c) 10 cm (d) 22 cm
The image of an object placed at a point A before a plane mirror LM is seen at the point B by an observer at D, as shown in the figure. Prove that the image is as far behind the mirror as the object is in front of the mirror.
A point object is placed at 15cm in front of a convex lens of focal length 10cm. Where shall we place a convex mirror of focal length 13cm so that real image and object coincide?
A point object O is placed in front of a plane mirror as shown in the figure. In order to see the image in mirror, the region where a person must place his eyes is best represented as:
