An object is placed 15cm from a convex mirror of radius of curvature 60cm. Find magnification & v.

Asked by  | 1st May, 2008, 10:48: PM

Expert Answer:

Object distance (u) and radius of curvature (R) is given.

Calculate focal length: f = R/2

Use mirror formula:1/f = 1/u +1/v to calculate image distance, v.

Magnification can be calculated by m = - v/u
