Spoiler for 2 answers


What would the answer be if you were enclosed in a perfect sphere (that is lit for seeing purposes somehow) and the entire inside of the sphere was a mirror?

Would position and angle really matter if you are inside a sphere of mirrors? :huh:

I think that's true if only the wall is mirrored.
OP says "The room is cylindric and covered with mirrors."
that's something to think about - walls and ceiling mirrored too.
Another thought will there be infinite reflections above and below, will that be infinite x 2? (or if you take one away is it infinity x 1/2?)

A parados question comming up!
