when a person moves towards a plane mirror with a speed of V, it is said that his image moves towards him with a speed of 2v. This does not sound plausible as the time taken by man and his image to reach one antoher is same. distance covered by both are same ( the image is equally behind the mirro). Is it the relative speed that they are talking about?
