# How far should anobject be placed from the pole of a concave mirror of focal length 20 cm to form a real image of the size exactly 1/4th the size of the object

focal length of concave mirror, f =-20cm
The distance between the object and the mirror (u) = ?
The distance between the image and the mirror (v) = ?
Let the size of the object be equal to 1.
Given size of the image = 1/4 size of the object.

ho = 1

But we know that

(-3/u) = (-1/20)
u = 60cm

# If light is a electromagnetic wave and light has very less mass and gravitational force is directly proportional to mass of the body and therefore this neglible mass of the sun's electromagnetic wave (light) allows them to escape the gravity of the sun and travel towards the earth .Then why this theory is not applicable or hold true for dark holes we know due dark holes's strong gravitational force light can't escape but you told gravitational pull is directly proportional to mass and light has neglible mass so it should also escape dark holes? please explain this.
