AcademicPhysicsNCERTClass 7

A concave mirror can form a real image.


Image formation by a concave mirror

  • When an object is placed very close to the concave mirror, a magnified, erect, and virtual image is obtained.
  • On increasing the distance between the object and the mirror, the size of the image gets decreased, and a real and inverted image is formed.
  • Thus, the image formed by a concave mirror can be small or large and real or virtual depending on the distance between the object and the concave mirror.
