A spherical mirror is to be used to form an image, five
times as tall as an object, on a screen positioned 5.0 m from the
mirror. (a) Describe the type of mirror required. (b) Where
should the object be positioned relative to the mirror?


Expert Answer

Step 1

M = -5


Image Transcriptionclose

- d,! d, d, = d, ! 5 = 4.2 / 5 = 0.84 m

Step 2

so, it will be


Image Transcriptionclose

d, x d (d. + di) 0.84x 5.0 (0.84 + 5.0) = 0.7 m ||
