Sum

An object is placed at the following distances from a concave mirror of focal length 15 cm, turn by turn:

(a) 35 cm
(b) 30 cm
(c) 20 cm
(d) 10 cm
Which position of the object will produce:

(i) a magnified real image?
(ii) a magnified virtual image?
(iii) a diminished real image?
(iv) an image of same size as the object?

Solution

Here, radius of curvature = 2 x focal length = 2 x 15 cm = 30 cm

(i) At position (c), i.e., 20 cm from the concave mirror, the image formed will be magnified and real. The reason being, a real and magnified image is formed by the concave mirror when an object is placed between the focus and the centre of curvature.

(ii) At position (d), i.e., 10 cm from the concave mirror, the image formed will be magnified and virtual. The reason being, a virtual and magnified image is formed by the concave mirror when an object is placed between the focus and the pole.

(iii) At position (a), i.e., 35 cm from the concave mirror, the image formed will be diminished and real. The reason being, a diminished and real image is formed by the concave mirror when an object is placed beyond the centre of curvature.

(iv) At position (b), i.e., 30 cm from the concave mirror, the image formed will be of the same size as the object. The reason being, an image of the same size as the object is formed by the concave mirror when the object is placed at the centre of curvature.
