Description

Spherical mirror: When the polished surface from where the light reflects is a part of a sphere, then it is called a spherical mirror. Spherical mirrors are of two types: concave mirrors and convex mirrors.

Concave mirror: The spherical part of the sphere, which is painted from the outer side, is called a concave mirror.

• The concave mirrors are used as shaving mirrors as they magnify objects placed close to them.
• These mirrors form real images as they have real focus and are called converging mirrors.

Convex mirror: The spherical part of the mirror, which is painted from the inner side, is called a convex mirror.

1. The convex mirrors are the side view mirrors of cars. These types of mirrors have wider fields of view than flat mirrors, but objects appear smaller in them.
2. These mirrors always form a virtual image because the focus is virtual. They are also called as diverging mirrors.
