Expert Answer
Focal length f=-30cm
Image distance v=20cm
object distance u=?
 
According to mirror formula
1 over v plus 1 over u equals 1 over f
fraction numerator begin display style 1 end style over denominator begin display style 20 end style end fraction plus fraction numerator begin display style 1 end style over denominator begin display style u end style end fraction equals fraction numerator begin display style 1 end style over denominator begin display style negative 30 end style end fraction
fraction numerator begin display style 1 end style over denominator begin display style u end style end fraction equals negative fraction numerator begin display style 1 end style over denominator begin display style 20 end style end fraction minus fraction numerator begin display style 1 end style over denominator begin display style 30 end style end fraction
fraction numerator begin display style 1 end style over denominator begin display style u end style end fraction equals fraction numerator begin display style negative 3 minus 2 end style over denominator begin display style 60 end style end fraction
fraction numerator begin display style 1 end style over denominator begin display style u end style end fraction equals fraction numerator begin display style negative 5 end style over denominator begin display style 60 end style end fraction
u equals negative 12 c m
the object is placed at a distance of 12cm from the mirror.
