Construct ray diagrams to determine whether each of the following
statements is true (T) or false (F). (a) For an object
at a concave mirror’s center of curvature, the image is real
and inverted. (b) As an object approaches the focal point of
a concave mirror, the image size shrinks to zero. (c) For an
object in front of a convex mirror, the image is always virtual
and upright.
