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

Question

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?

Draw a ray diagram for concave mirror when the object is between centre of curvature and focus.

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.

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.
