A spherical mirror produces an image of magnification -1.0 on a screen placed at a distance of 30 cm from the pole of the mirror.
(i) Write the type of mirror in this case.
(ii) What is the focal length of the mirror ?
(iii) What is the nature of the image formed ?
(iv) Draw the ray diagram to show the image formation in this case.
m=-1 , v=-30 cm
We know that,
(i) Since the magnification has a negative sign, the typa of mirror is a concave mirror
(ii) Using `1/f=1/v+1/u`, we get
∴ Focal length of the concave mirror is 15 cm
(iii) Since the magnitude of magnification is equal to 1 and the sign of magnification is negative, the image will be of the same size as the object, and its nature will be real and inverted.
