Answer:

(a) The image formed in front of the concave mirror is real, so m is negative,

m = -3, u = -10 cm

As m = -v/u or -3 = -v/-10

v = -30 cm

By mirror formula,

1/f = 1/v + 1/u = 1/-30 + 1/-10 = -4/30

or f = -30/4 = -7.5 cm

 Radius of curvature, R = 2f = 2 x (-7.5) = 15cm

(b) A lens is a piece of transparent glass bound by two spherical surfaces.
