Q.35.
Define centre of curvature. Find the nature and focal length of spherical mirror whose radius of curvature is+ 24 cm.

Radius of curvature: The radius of curvature of a spherical mirror is the radius of the sphere of which the reflecting surface of spherical mirror is a part and is represented by r’ Focal point : It is the distance between the pole P and the focus F and is represented by f. If f is the focal length and r is the radius of curvature then f=r/2 or r = 2f and this relation is for concave and convex mirrors.Optical centre: The optical centre is the actual geometrical centre of the lens. Radius of curvature of spherical mirror = +24 cm ...(Given)Thus, f = R/2 = +24/2 = + 12 cm Thus, focal length of spherical mirror is +12 cm. The positive sign of focal length of mirror indicates that the mirror is convex mirror. Note: - If you require answer to rest of the questions kindly crop the image and post them separately as only one question can be answered per post.
