. A concave mirror of focal length 15 Cm can form a magnified erect as well as inverted image of an object placed in front of it

Justify this statement stating the position of the object with respect to the pole of the mirror in both cases for obtaining the images.


Best Answer

Ans. Case 1. When the object is placed between less than 15 Cm from the pole, i.e., between the pole and  the focus  of a concave mirror,  a magnified,  erect  and  virtual  image  will  be formed.

Case2. When the object is placed between 15 to 30 cm, i.e., between the focus and the centre of curvature of the concave  mirror, a magnified,  inverted  and  real image will be formed.
