Jurassic Park! Rear View Mirror Objects in the mirror are closer than they appear!
Convex Mirror Equation 1 / d o + 1 / d i = 1 / f Note: f is negative d i is negative
Convex Mirror Problem A 3 cm high candle is located 5 cm from a convex mirror whose radius of curvature is 20 cm. What are the characteristics of the image?
Convex Mirror Problem f = - 10 cm 1/d o + 1/ d i = 1/f 1/5 + 1/ d i = - 1/10 1/ d i = - 3/10 d i = - 3.3 cm The image is 3.3 cm behind the mirror, virtual, upright, and reduced in size m = - d i / d o m = 1 / 3
