Textbook Problem

(a) Calculate the focal length of the mirror formed by the shiny back of a spoon that has a 3.00 cm radius of curvature. (b) What is its power in diopters?

To determine

(a)

The focal length of the mirror formed by the shiny back of a spoon.

Explanation

Given info:

Radius of curvature of the mirror is R=3.00cm.

Formula used:

Formula for radius of curvature of thin mirror is,

  f=R2

Here,

  • R is the radius of curvature.
  • f is the focal length
To determine

(b)

The power of the mirror in diopters.
