What do images look like in a Concave and Convex Mirror?

Saturday, September 12, 2020

Concave mirrors are mirrors that are thinner in the middle compared to the edges.
As a result, light rays are focused in front of the lens, and images are enlarged close to the mirror.
Notice how the bulldog is enlarged in the concave mirror.

The image will be maximized when it is at the focal point.
See the image below.

Beyond the focal point, the image begins to get smaller and is inverted.
See below.

A convex mirror is a mirror that is wider in the middle compared to the edges.
As a result, light is spread out and a convex mirror creates a panoramic image but the image is not inverted.
See the image below.
