axis strike a convex mirror, the reflected rays diverge after being reflected, and appear to
originate from the focal point F behind the mirror (see Figure 25.16). We can treat the sun
as being infinitely far from the mirror, so it is reasonable to treat the incident rays as
paraxial rays that are parallel to the principal axis.
SOLUTION
a. Since the sun is infinitely far from the mirror and its image is a virtual image that lies
behind the mirror, we can conclude that the mirror is a convex mirror .
b. With d i = –12.0 cm and d o = ∞ , the mirror equation (Equation 25.3) gives 1

Therefore, the focal length f lies 12.0 cm behind the mirror (this is consistent with the
reasoning above that states that, after being reflected, the rays appear to originate from the
focal point behind the mirror). In other words, f = –12.0 cm . Then, according to

Equation 25.2, f = – 2 R , and the radius of curvature is

diameter of the flower and hi is the diameter of its image. The water drop acts as a convex
spherical mirror, so the image is upright. Therefore, the image height hi is positive, and we
expect the focal length f to be negative.

a. You need a concave mirror to make the measurement. Since you must measure the image
distance and image height of the tree, the image must be a real image. Only a concave
mirror can produce a real image. The image distance of the sun is equal to the focal length
of the mirror. The sun is extremely far away, so the light rays from it are nearly parallel
when they reach the mirror. According to the discussion in Section 25.5, light rays near and
parallel to the principal axis are reflected from a concave mirror and converge at the focal
point.
With numerical values for the focal length f of the mirror and the image distance di, the
mirror equation (Equation 25.3) can be used to find the object distance do:

ho = hi/m (Equation 25.4). However, the magnification is given by the magnification
equation (Equation 25.4) as m = −di/do, where di is the image distance and do is the object
distance, both of which we know.

To obtain the focal length, we will use the mirror
equation. To do so, it is necessary to obtain values for the object and image distances.
Since the image distance for virtual image 1 in Figure 25.20b is a negative quantity, – d i
will be a positive quantity. Therefore, the distance between the readout devic...
