Find the image, method 2, the mirror/lens equation When a spherical mirror is given, we know its radius R . Under paraxial condition , the angle is small, and from the law of reflection and focal point definition, we have That is the focal length is 2 R f = for a converging mirror. N V NCF 1 2 CF FN CN =
