## What are the 6 cases of a concave mirror?

There are six possibilities of the position of object in the case of concave mirror.

• Object at infinity.
• Object between infinity and centre of curvature (C)
• Object at centre of curvature (C)
• Object between centre of curvature (C) and Principal focus (F)
• Object at Principal Focus (F)

## What is the case of concave mirror?

Case 1: the object is located beyond the center of curvature (C) Case 2: the object is located at the center of curvature (C) Case 3: the object is located between the center of curvature (C) and the focal point (F) Case 4: the object is located at the focal point (F)

What are the applications of concave mirror?

Uses of concave mirrors are following:

• Concave mirrors are used in the Vehicles headlights.
• Concave mirror is used in the Shaving mirrors.
• Concave mirrors are used in the Solar furnaces.
• Concave mirrors are used in the Searchlights.
• Concave mirrors are used in the Torches.
• Concave mirrors are used in the Flashlights.

How many cases are there in convex mirror?

So, there will only be 2 cases.

### What are the image formation by concave mirror?

The concave mirrors can form two types of images which include- Real and virtual The Real and virtual images are formed by concave mirrors. The images formed can be upright (if virtual) or inverted (if real). Also, the position of the image can be behind the mirror (if virtual) or in front of the mirror (if real).

### What image is formed by a concave mirror?

Both real and virtual images are formed by the concave mirror. When the object is placed very close to the mirror, a virtual and magnified image is formed.

How many ray diagrams are there for concave mirror?

The intersection of these two rays after reflection gives the position of the image of the object. For a concave mirror any of the following four ray diagrams can be used for locating the image formed: a) A ray parallel to the principal axis, after reflection, will pass through the principal focus of a concave mirror.

Is concave mirror real or virtual?

Concave mirrors can produce both real and virtual images depending on the distance from the mirror to the object and the curvature of the mirror, while convex mirrors produce only virtual images.

## What is the other name of concave mirror?

A concave mirror is also known as a “Converging Mirror” since in these type of mirrors light rays converge at a point after they strike and are reflected back from the reflecting surface of the concave mirror.

## How image is formed in concave mirror?

The formation of an image that occurs in a concave mirror mainly depends on the distance between the object and the mirror. Both real and virtual images are formed by the concave mirror. When the object is placed very close to the mirror, a virtual and magnified image is formed.
