The magnification of a convex mirror is 0.7 CM when an object is kept at distance of 30 cm from its find the focal length

Magnification m = -v/u = 0.7
where v is mirror to image distance and u is mirror to object distance .
we are given u = -30 cm ( Cartesian sign convention is applied)
hence , v = 0.7×30 = 21 cm
we have mirror eqn., (1/v) + (1/u) = 1/f, where f is focal length
1/f = (1/21) - (1/30) = 1/70 or focal length f = 70 cm

- A concave mirror has a magnification of -2.5 if its focal length is 20 cm find its image and object position?
- The magnification of plane mirror is always
- The distance between the object and its inverted image formed by a concave mirror is 25cm. If the magnification produced by the mirror is -2, use mirror formula to determine the object distance, image distance and focal length of the mirror. Draw a ray diagram to illustrate image formation in this case and also mark the distances on it.
- An object is placed at a distance of 25cm from a mirror. The mirror produces an image that is 20 cm (i) behind the mirror; and (ii) in front of the mirror. For each case, find focal length of the mirror and nature of mirror.
- I have 2 questions. 1:Prove r=2f or f= r=/2. 2:State Mirror Formula.
- If a concave mirror has a focal length of 15 cm, find the two positions where an object can be placed to give, in each case, an image twice the height of the object
- An object is placed 20 CM in front of concave mirror of focal length 12 cm find the position and nature of the image
- Define the term 'magnification'.
- Is mirror formula valid only for the plane mirror?
