Akshay Patel 4/2/11 Period 10 Honors Physics Lab- Spherical Mirrors Objective: To determine what types of images are formed for each of the “mirror cases.” Conclusion: In this lab, we had to find the types of images that are formed for each of the mirrors cases which were on the given to us. We knew how to make the rays that had to be traced from the object because it was explain on the ray diagrams sheet about curved mirrors. After we drew the rays, we knew that they should intersect and that would be the location of the image. While looking at the image, we would know that if the image is in front of the mirror, it is real image. If it were behind the mirror, it would be virtual image. From our background information, real images are always inverted and virtual images are always upright. We knew that the focal length for each ray diagram is 5 cm so the radius would be 10 cm. Also the object height would be 2 cm, which won’t change for each diagram. We recorded the image type, orientation, measured, and measured image size.
