explain why a ray of light passing through the centre of curvature of a concave mirror gets reflected along the same path ?
Asked by bhavikabhatia1125 | 27th May, 2021, 06:53: PM
As shown in figure the line passing through centre of curvature is normal to the spherical surface.
Hence Light ray passing through centre of curvature makes normal incidence on reflective surface of spherical mirror.
Hence light ray passing through centre of curvature is reflected along same path.

- the question which i had asked regarding a ray of light incident perpendicularly from top of an object , is there in the cbse sample qp of 2021 but the answer given there is centre of curvature but the answer given by topperlearning is Focus, can you pls recheck
- what is the correct answer with explanation
- The image formed by a concave mirror is observed to be virtual, erect and larger than the object. where should be the position of the object?
- Mam what is the paraxial rays?
- if an image formed an a concave mirror is real and enlarged its magnification will be
- An object of size 5 cm is placed at a distance of 20cm in front of concave mirror of radius of curvature 30cm. a) Find the position of the image, its nature and size. b) Draw the corresponding ray diagram.
- distinguish between real image and virtual image
- write the rules for the formation of image by spherical mirrors
