Transcript of MIRRORS
true picture of something else. TYPES OF MIRRORS LAW OF REFLECTION Two mirrors placed at any angleN= number of images formed
Magnification = height of image/
height of object •They come from a section of a spherical glass. A concave is the inner portion and convex is the outer or the surface. a mirror with a curved reflective surface , which The law of reflection still holds for this type of mirror. However, the distances and sizes of the object and the image are no longer equal. Characteristics of Images Formed
1. Located behind the mirror
3. Same size as the object
5. Undergoes a lateral inversion in relation to the object.
6. Situated at the same distance from the mirror as the object. USES According to Position of object For the primary ray, use Parallel then direct it to the focus after reflection.
For the second ray direct it from the object to the focus. After hitting the mirror, draw a line parallel to the principal axis. A simple Guide in using the ray diagram method
The inner portion of the sphere. This is a mirror that curves inwards like a "cave."
The image formed is larger.
It curves outwards like the back of a spoon
image formed is usually smaller THE TWO KINDS OF CURVED MIRRORS THE TWO KINDS OF CURVED MIRRORS LEGEND: F - focus
C- center of curvature PARTS OF A CURVED MIRROR CASE 3: object between
C and F CASE 1: object is at C RAY DIAGRAMS FOR CONCAVE MIRRORS RAY DIAGRAMS FOR CONCAVE MIRRORS TWO MIRRORS PLACED AT ANY ANGLE Magnification
Magnification = height of image/
height of object may be either convex (bulging outward) or concave (bulging inward). FACTS ABOUT CURVED MIRRORS The most common kinds are parabolic and the spherical. PARTS OF A CURVED MIRROR PARTS OF A CURVED MIRROR Real, Inverted, Same size CASE 2: object at F No Image No Image Real, Inverted, Magnified Virtual, Upright, Magnified N= number of images formed height of image height of object __________________ Magnification = MAGNIFICATION Mnemonics: RIS Mnemonics: NO Mnemonics: RIM Mnemonics: VUM CASE 4: Object between

- for avoiding collisions of personnel/objects Surveillance cameras (duh!) Inspection mirror (mini!)
- for smaller, more intricate machinery, e.g. clocks Outdoor convex mirrors
- for road safety Security mirrors
- used in establishments and other areas with valuables to see people's activity 4 3 2 1 Rearview mirrors - for wide view of vehicle rears Rearview mirrors - for wide view of vehicle rears Inspection mirrors - for heavy machinery/car repairs Security mirrors "History of mirrors - The earliest man made mirrors."
