ConceptRepresentation of Images Formed by Spherical Mirrors Using Ray Diagrams - Concave Mirror  

Question

It is desired to obtain an erect image of an object, using concave mirror of focal length of 12 cm.

Where will the image of this object be, if it is placed 24 cm in front of the mirror? Draw ray diagram for this situation also justify your answer. Show the positions of pole, principal focus and the centre of curvature in the above ray diagrams

It is desired to obtain an erect image of an object, using concave mirror of focal length of 12 cm.

Will the image be smaller or larger than the object? Draw ray diagram to show the formation of image in this case.

If the image formed by a mirror for all positions of the object placed in front of it is always erect and diminished, what type of mirror is it? Draw a ray diagram to justify your answer. Where and why do we generally use this type of mirror?

view solution

A spherical mirror and a thin spherical lens have each a focal length of -15 cm. The mirror and the lens are likely to be
(a) both concave
(b) both convex
(c) the mirror is concave and the lens is convex
(d) the mirror is convex, but the lens is concave

view solution

Draw a ray diagram to show the path of the refracted ray in each of the following cases:-

A ray of light incident on a concave lens is

(i) passing through its optical centre.

(ii) parallel to its principal axis.

(iii) directed towards its principal focus.
