An object of size 7.0 cm is placed at 27 cm in front of a concave mirror of focal length 18 cm. At what distance from the mirror should a screen be placed, so that a sharp focused image can be obtained? Find the size and the nature of the image.

Answer :

Object distance, u= - 27 cm

Object height, h= 7 cm

Focal length, f = - 18 cm

According to the mirror formula,

The screen should be placed at a distance of 54 cm in front of the given mirror

m = \(\frac{-54}{27} \) = -2

Negative value indicates that image formed is real.

h' = h × m

h' = 7 × (-2) = -14 cm

The negative value of the image height indicates that the image formed is inverted.

- Which one of the following materials cannot be used to make a lens? Water Glass Plastic Clay
- The image formed by a concave mirror is observed to be virtual, erect and larger than the object. Where should be the position of the object? Between the principal focus and the centre of curvature At the centre of curvature Beyond the centre of curvature Between the pole of the mirror and its principal focus.
- Where should an object be placed in front of a convex lens to get a real image of the size of the object? At the principal focus of the lens At twice the focal length At infinity Between the optical centre of the lens and its principal focus.
- A spherical mirror and a thin spherical lens have each a focal length of -15 cm. The mirror and the lens are likely to be both concave both convex the mirror is concave and the lens is convex the mirror is convex and the lens is concave.
- No matter how far you stand from a mirror, your image appears erect. The mirror is likely to be plane concave convex either plane or convex
- Which of the following lenses would you prefer to use while reading small letters found in a dictionary? A convex lens of focal length 50 cm A concave lens of focal length 50 cm A convex lens of focal length 5 cm A concave lens of focal length 5 cm
- We wish to obtain an erect image of an object, using a concave mirror of focal length 15 cm. What should be the range of distance of the object from the mirror? What is the nature of the image? Is the image larger or smaller than the object? Draw a ray diagram to show the image formation in this case.
- Name the type of mirror used in the following situations. Headlights of a car Side/rear-view mirror of a vehicle Solar furnace Support your answer with reason.
- One-half of a convex lens is covered with a black paper. Will this lens produce a complete image of the object? Verify your answer experimentally. Explain your observations.
- An object 5 cm in length is held 25 cm away from a converging lens of focal length 10 cm. Draw the ray diagram and find the position, size and the nature of the image formed.
- A concave lens of focal length 15 cm forms an image 10 cm from the lens. How far is the object placed from the lens? Draw the ray diagram.
- An object is placed at a distance of 10 cm from a convex mirror of focal length 15 cm. Find the position and nature of the image.
- The magnification produced by a plane mirror is +1. What does this mean?
- An object 5 cm is placed at a distance of 20 cm in front of a convex mirror of radius of curvature 30 cm. Find the position, nature and size of the image.
- Find the focal length of a lens of power -2.0 D. What type of lens is this? Power of lens, P = \(\frac{1}{f} \) P = -2D f = \(\frac{1}{P} \) f = \(\frac{-1}{2} \) ;
- A doctor has prescribed a corrective lens of power +1.5 D. Find the focal length of the lens. Is the prescribed lens diverging or converging ?
