why are convex mirrors used in seeing rear view of vehicles

Asked by  | 2nd Dec, 2012, 07:55: AM

Expert Answer:

Rear view mirrors of cars are convex mirrors as they enable the driver to see a wide area of the road behind the car. The convex mirror makes the rays of a parallel beam diverge as if they were coming from its focus, thereby producing a diminished virtual image, which the driver can see.
