Difference between Image and Shadow

1. Image is formed by intersection of reflected rays. Shadow is formed when light does not reach behind the object.

2. Image is seen when reflected rays approach to observer’s eyes. In shadow, no light enters to the observer’s eyes.

3. Image gives more information such as colour, structure etc. Shadow does not provide such information.

4. Image can be straight or inverted. Shadow is never inverted.
