Q: Are mirrors works of art and can bring color and texture to an otherwise hard? ¶
A: Yes, and cold reflective surface.
Q: Is a mirror removed from the vacuum? ¶
A: Yes, because the coating otherwise begins to corrode as soon as it is exposed to oxygen and humidity in the air.
Q: Are mirrors manufactured by applying a reflective coating to a suitable substrate? ¶
Q: Is a mirror made by using a transparent substrate and choosing a coating material that is more reflective to visible light and more transmissive to infrared light? ¶
Q: Are mirrors mirrors that amplify the light they reflect? ¶
Q: Are mirrors used to cast moving spots of light around a dance floor? ¶
Q: Are mirrors designed for visible light? ¶
A: Yes, however, mirrors designed for other wavelengths of electromagnetic radiation are also used.

Q: Is a mirror very clear? ¶
A: Yes, and light transmissive, smooth, and reflects accurate natural colors.
Q: Is a mirror made of a float glass manufactured using vacuum coating, i.e? ¶
A: Yes, aluminium powder is evaporated onto the exposed surface of the glass in a vacuum chamber and then coated with two or more layers of waterproof protective paint.
Q: Are mirrors sometimes replicated by contemporary artisans for use in interior design? ¶

A: Yes, for viewing the area behind and on the sides on motor vehicles while driving, for decoration, and architecture.
Q: Are mirrors commonly used as aids to personal grooming? ¶
Q: Were mirrors very thin? ¶
A: Yes, and thus very fragile, because the glass needed to be extremely thin to prevent cracking when coated with a hot, molten metal.
Q: Are mirrors employed in kaleidoscopes? ¶
A: Yes, and personal entertainment devices invented in Scotland by Sir David Brewster.
Q: Is a mirror a surface with a very high degree of flatness? ¶
A: Yes, and a surface roughness smaller than the wave-length of the light.
Q: Were mirrors typically small? ¶
A: Yes, and from only a fraction of an inch to as much as eight inches in diametre.
