A Converging Mirror Forms a Real Image of Height 4 Cm of an Object of Height 1 Cm Placed 20 Cm Away from the Mirror: (I) Calculate the Image Distance. (Ii) What is the Focal Length of the Mirror? - Science

A converging mirror forms a real image of height 4 cm of an object of height 1 cm placed 20 cm away from the mirror:

(i) Calculate the image distance.
(ii) What is the focal length of the mirror?

A concave mirror is a converging mirror.

Distance of the object from the mirror 'u' = -20 cm
Height of the object 'ho' = 1 cm
Height of the image 'hi' = -4 cm
We have to find the distance of the image 'v' and focal length of the mirror 'f'.
Using the magnification formula, we get  
`v=20xx-4/1=-80` cm 

Thus, the distance of the image 'v' is 80 cm.

Now, using the mirror formula, we get 




f=-16 cm 

Thus, the focal length of the concave mirror is 16 cm.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
