Unformatted text preview: I The line intersecting the center of a spherical mirror and its center of curvature, C, is the principol oxis. Light travelling parallel to the principal axis, after striking a concave mirror, converges at the focus, F, or appears to diverge from the {negative} focus in the case of a convex mirror. I To construct a ray diagram with a spherical mirror, first draw a ray from the object point parallel to the principal axis. This ray reflects back through the focus [or appears to originate from the focus with a convex mirror}. The ray from the object point which travels through the focus before stiiiting the mirror {or toward the focus with a convex mirror} reflects parallel to the principal axis. The ray that travels through the center of curvature reflects hack on itself. The image point is where these rays intersect [real image} or where they appear to originate {virtual image}. I If the object distance exceeds the focal length, a concave mirror produces a real, inverted image. The image is diminished if the object is further than the center of curvature and enlarged if the object is between the center of curvav ture and the focus. For an object placed nearer to the mirror than the focus, the image produced is a enlarged, erect, and virtual. The image produced by a single convex mirror is always diminished, erect and virtual {DEF}. THE MHDMABU‘H’E IS NDT'I'l-IE‘I'II'IIWTDA FOUT-I'IDLD HERE. STUDY THE IiIU-GES'EFTHE EWUE MRRflR.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
