Expert Answer:

Let AB be an object placed on the principal axis of a convex mirror of focal length f. u is the distance between the object and the mirror and v is the distance between the image and the mirror.


convex mirror formula


But DE = AB and when the aperture is very small EF = PF.

 Equation (2) becomes

 From equations (1) and (3) we get

[PF = f, PB1 = v, PB = u, PC = 2f]

Dividing both sides of the equation (4) by uvf we get
