An object is placed at a distance of 6 cm from a convex mirror of focal length 12 cm. Find the position and nature of the image.
Distance of the object (u) = -6cm
Focal length of the convex mirror (f) = 12 cm
We have to find the position of the image (v) and the nature of the image.
Using the mirror formula, we get:
Thus, the distance of the image (v) is 4 cm behind the mirror.
Now, using the magnification formula, we get:
Thus, the image is virtual, erect and small.
