An object is placed at a distance of 10 cm from a convex mirror of focal length 5 cm.
(a) Draw a ray-diagram showing the formation image
(b) State two characteristics of the image formed
(c) Calculate the distance of the image from mirror.
(a) Ray Diagram-
(b) Following are the characteristics of the image formed:
(2) It is smaller than the object.
(c) Distance of the object 'u' = -10 cm
Focal length of the convex mirror is 5 cm.
We have to find the distance of the image 'v'.
Using the mirror formula, we get
⇒`v=10/3` ⇒`v=3.3 cm `
Thus, the distance of the image is 3.3 cm behind the mirror.
