PHY102 Spherical mirrors ± Two types – diverging and converging named according to whether rays diverge/converge after reflection ± Possess a focal point – a point in space through which all rays, which were initially parallel to the symmetry axis of the mirror, pass after reflection ± 2 focal points (in front and behind). focal length =distance from mirror= radius of curvature / 2.

PHY102 Finding images – ray diagrams ± Locate image by drawing at least 2 rays – typically one that goes through focal point and one that passes through center of curvature. Image at crossing point.
