why presently sign convention is known as new sign convention

The sign convention followed for spherical mirrors and spherical lenses that is similar to sign convention of
cartesian coordinate system is called New Cartesian sign convention.
It is easy to follow and easy to remember because we are very much familiar to Cartesian coordinate system.
It is assumed in this sign convention, pole of the mirror or optical centre of lens is at origin of cartesian coordinate system.
Distances parallel to optical axis are measured by taking pole of the mirror or optical centre of lens because origin is there
at pole of mirror or optical centre of lens.
Distances parallel to optical axis which are right of pole of mirror or optical centre of lens are +ve .
Distances parallel to optical axis which are left of pole of mirror or optical centre of lens are -ve .
Distances perpendicular to optical axis are measured by taking optical axis as reference and given sign as per cartesian
coordinate system, i.e., distances measured upward from optic axis are +ve and distances measured downward from
optic axis are negative.

- The distance between the real object and its image in a convex mirror of focal length 12 cm is 32 cm. the size of the object is 1cm. the object distance will be
- when we reverse the image then image will formed or not
- A REAL OBJECT IS LOCATED IS LOCATED AT ZERO END OF A METER STICK. A CONCAVE MIRROR LOCATED AT 100 cm END OF THE METER STICK FORMS AN IMAGE OF THE OBJECT AT THE 70cm POSITION. A CONVEX MIRROR PLACED AT THE 60cm POSITION FORMS A FINAL IMAGE AT THE 10 cm POINT WHAT IS THE RADIUS OF CURVATURE OF THE CONVEX MIRROR?
- A concave mirror produces three times magnified (enlarged) real image of an object placed at 10cm in front of it . Where is the image located?
- findthe size nature and position of image formed when an object of size 1 cm is placed at a distance of 15from a fro from a concave mirror of focal length 10cm cm from a concave mirror of focal length in centimetre from a concave mirror of
