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


Justify this statement stating the position of the object with respect to the mirror in each case for obtaining these images.

 

Best Answer

Ans. When the object is placed at a distance less than 'f' (focal length) from the mirror, the image formed is virtual, magnified and erect. When the object is placed at a distance of 'f' (focal length) from the mirror, the image is real, inverted and highly magnified. When the object is placed at a distance more than 'f' (focal length) but less than '2f', the image formed is real, inverted and magnified.

When the object is placed at a distance more than '2f' from the mirror, the image formed is real, inverted and diminished.
