<-----------Exactly like this

But what if you brought a flashlight with you
Would the room become increasingly bright and blinding
User avatar #88 to #79 - flemsdfer ONLINE (10/13/2013) [-]
If you brought a flashlight with you, that would mean that you and a flashlight would be in the room of mirrors. This is a room made of mirrors, filled with absolutely nothing.
User avatar #82 to #79 - thehardstudynot (10/13/2013) [-]
what? no!
that would require that mirrors reflected more than 100% of the light that hits them
User avatar #85 to #82 - skeptical (10/13/2013) [-]
More like exactly 100% and a body inside the room that would not absorb more light than is produced.
User avatar #86 to #85 - thehardstudynot (10/13/2013) [-]
right, didnt quite think that through...

mirrors are not 100% efficient
User avatar #84 to #81 - skeptical (10/13/2013) [-]
This being a physics problem, I thought we were assuming the principle of a perfectly efficient mirror, where all of the light that hit it was reflected. I think the real problem would be whether the body contained within the room would absorb more light than is produced.
User avatar #23 - Welshhobo (10/13/2013) [-]
Two things happen:

1. Most mirrors reflect light from the green spectrum better than others, so will turn more and more green the deeper the reflections go

2. Some light passes through the mirror and gets absorbed. This means each reflection gets darker and darker until theres nothing.

Pretty much what I wanted to say. In room you would see lines there mirrors connect. But if you had ball shaped room and you shot light into it and sealed the room before it came back what then? Obviously it would go dark after while since mirrors consume some of light.

What if you had perfect mirrors (reflects 100% of light) and you shot them into ball shaped room, and closed it. What it would look like?
User avatar #30 to #25 - Welshhobo (10/13/2013) [-]
In a ball shaped room reflections are stretched. If you stood in front of a 180 degree curved mirror, you wouldn't see anything directly in front of you, but would see yourself stretch out. Thats when the mirror is concaved. When convexed the reflection is squeezed into a smaller space.

Its physically impossible to have "perfect" mirrors as that would need an infinitely flat surface. On an atomic level, a mirror looks like gravel. The flatter this "gravel" is, the more light would be reflected. However, say the impossible happens a mirror room that reflects 100% of light is made. Eventually the light particles (photons) would slow down and die due to loss of energy. The reflections would go on in the billions though and the room would probably get warmer.

"What if you had".. Also in ball shaped room you would see yourself horisontaly fliped rather then streched.
I know it doesnt exist, its more rhetorical.. If you had perfect mirror what would that light looked like. My guess is just bright white (since you dont loose any color).
User avatar #38 to #35 - Welshhobo (10/13/2013) [-]
It would just look identical to the light going into it. It wouldn't get brighter.
#45 to #38 - winterguy (10/13/2013) [-]
Well the light is bright, that was mine point
User avatar #28 to #23 - AnonymousGuru (10/13/2013) [-]
Quite frankly, that sounds surprisingly terrifying.
#32 to #28 - butwhynot (10/13/2013) [-]
It actually isn't as terrifying as you'd think. It very much depens on the shape of the room though. A good example is the room of mirrors that Da Vinci designed (look it up) I think it is an octogon. Either way, I stood in one and basically you can, without moving, see yourself from practically every possible angle. It's pretty cool.

Picture related, it's one of those thingies.
#78 - omgheythere (10/13/2013) [-]
It'd be pitch black...because there would be no light to be reflected.....

box of mirrors posted a while back
User avatar #27 to #9 - ompalomper (10/13/2013) [-]
the picture with only the camera would make a great canon advertisement pic
User avatar #44 to #9 - nsali (10/13/2013) [-]
if there is absolutely nothing in the room, it would be nothing, without a focal point of an object in the room, its pointless, you couldnt even but a little camera in the room, its a focal point, but, what if one of the walls was a two way mirror and you could look into the room that had nothing in it?

What if you were on the inside of a big spherical mirror?

User avatar #33 to #31 - adzodeux (10/13/2013) [-]
You'd only be able to see whatever's in the center of the sphere, I guess
User avatar #34 to #33 - vladhellsing (10/13/2013) [-]
As in a hollow, reflective ball (reflective on the inside as well). I understand there'd be no light, but suppose you brought a flashlight.
User avatar #36 to #34 - kirisaki (10/13/2013) [-]
Mirrors can't reflect light in eternity. it will fade out to become greener and greener until it's dark. since green is the color that is best reflected by mirrors.

here is your answer. source vsauce: INSIDE a Spherical Mirror

there ya go INSIDE a Spherical Mirror
User avatar #39 to #31 - kodex (10/13/2013) [-]
I would be dark because there is no light source.

INSIDE a Spherical Mirror
If you like this vid, you should check some of the other he has.
User avatar #77 - Mahazama (10/13/2013) [-]
You also have to take into account that if you can somehow witness this event, that you are also visible.
User avatar #43 - KingJuan (10/13/2013) [-]
it would be a dark room
User avatar #96 - soulsanguniarian (10/13/2013) [-]
There would be nothing but Darkness because there's nothing but ******* mirrors.
#91 - ponchilio (10/13/2013) [-]
Something like this if you had any source of light.
User avatar #72 - sirhyden (10/13/2013) [-]
It would turn green, the same colour as the side of a mirror....
User avatar #60 - kyoutu (10/13/2013) [-]
you wouldn't see anything.... the room would be in darkness due to the absence of light in the mirrored room thus having nothing to reflect, mirrors require light.
#53 - jonnythan (10/13/2013) [-]
how would you possibly know even if there was a magical light source inside it?
you'd have to be inside the room to see it, or with a camera.
in which case you'd get a bunch of reflections of a person or camera
#47 - anon (10/13/2013) [-]
idiots. if it's all mirrors, there is no light source and you see nothing.
If you do have a light source, that's all you'll see.
User avatar #48 to #47 - tomowrath (10/13/2013) [-]
I have to explain that every time people post this ******* picture...
#42 - dafuq (10/13/2013) [-]
This is what would happen.
User avatar #46 to #42 - nustix (10/13/2013) [-]
That's when you have a light source inside the box, it was just mirrors in the example it would probably just be black.
#58 - shinigamizak (10/13/2013) [-]
maybe someone else have alreaydy had this thought, but i think if there's a closed room with only mirrors, there would be no light. So there would just be complete darkness and nothing could be seen. And if you hang a lamp in there then it would be reflections of the lamp o_o
#61 to #58 - vendelo (10/13/2013) [-]
You are exactly right, and people who repost the image above are idiots.
User avatar #90 to #61 - sweener (10/13/2013) [-]
****** physics teacher too.
#99 to #90 - vendelo (10/14/2013) [-]
if only it had been a proper ******** , then the reaction from the teacher would have been perfect!
User avatar #52 - dumbassvtwo (10/13/2013) [-]
INSIDE a Spherical Mirror Something like this.
User avatar #41 - cosmohill (10/13/2013) [-]
Firstly, nothing, assuming there's no light source, you would see nothing. Assuming there IS a light source, the angle it would hit every mirror would fill each mirror with an image of the light source (Not indefinitely, as some people assumed) but would return to darkness in less than a 10th of a second once the light source is extinguished. There is actually a Vsauce video that answers this perfectly.

I know you funnyjunkers are pretty straight edge but the last time i did shrooms everything was mirrored, pretty ******* crazy
#89 to #74 - asdflower (10/13/2013) [-]
what the **** kind of shrooms are you taking man? yeah, visual distortions for sure, but having everything mirrored would **** your brain up pretty good trying to navigate.
User avatar #97 to #89 - vanillasmoke (10/13/2013) [-]
it was a mix up with the chick i bought them off of, i wanted five grams of shrooms to split with my buddy hamilton, chick said fifty bones so we met up, and she gave me a dunkin donuts bag witha **** ton of shrooms in it. i gave her the fifty and split. we ended up splitting the bag, basically, i gave myself more of the larger caps and honestly a few more shrooms. kitkac can vouge, he was trip master
#98 to #97 - kitkac (10/13/2013) [-]
he pounded some shrooms and then went to Mars dude, **** was funny
User avatar #75 to #74 - bitchplzzz (10/13/2013) [-]
straight edge is gay as hell
User avatar #71 - Jackimole (10/13/2013) [-]
It wouldn't look like anything unless you had a light source.
