Question

Describe with a suitable diagram, how a convex mirror diverges a parallel beam of light rays. Mark clearly the pole, focus and centre of curvature of concave mirror in this diagram.

Solution

When a parallel beam of light, also parallel to the principle axis, is incident on a convex mirror, it will reflect from the mirror, and the reflected rays will appear to come from a point which is called the focus (F) of the convex mirror. So, a convex mirror has a virtual focus.
