Draw ray diagrams to show the principal focus of a convex mirror.

view solution

Draw a ray diagram to show the path of the reflected ray corresponding to an incident ray of light parallel to the principal axis of a convex mirror and show the angle of incidence and angle of reflection on it.

We wish to obtain an erect image of an object, using a concave mirror of focal length 15 cm. What should be the range of distance of the object from the mirror? What is the nature of the image? Is the image larger or smaller than the object? Draw a ray diagram to show the image formation in this case.

view solution

To construct ray diagrams, two rays of light are generally so chosen that it is easy to determine their directions after reflection from a mirror. Choose two such rays and state the path/direction of these rays after reflection from a concave mirror. Use these two rays to find the position and nature of the image of an object placed at a distance of 8 cm from a concave mirror of focal length 12 cm.

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.
