The negative value for di2 indicates that the image is located 14 cm behind the mirror. 21. REASONING
a. We are dealing with a concave mirror whose radius of curvature is 56.0 cm. Thus, the
focal length of the mirror is f = 1 R = 28.0 cm (Equation 25.1) The object distance is
2
do = 31.0 cm. With known values for f and do, we can use the mirror equation to (Equation
25.3) find the image distance.
b. To determine the image height hi, recall that it is related to the object height ho by the
magnification m; hi = mho. The magnification is related to the image and object distances by
the magnification equation, m = −di / d o (Equation 25.4). Since we know values for ho, di,
and do, we can find the image height hi. SOLUTION

28.0 cm 31.0 cm so di = 290 cm (25.3) b. Using the magnification equation, we find that the image height is 290 cm d
hi = mho = − i ho = − ( 0.95 cm ) = 31.0 cm do −8.9 cm (25.4) Chapter 25 Problems 1297 c. Since hi is negative, the image is inverted relative to the object. Thus, to make the picture
on the wall appear normal, the slide must be oriented upside down in the projector. 22. REASONING For an image that is in front of a mirror, the image distance is positive.
Since the image is inverted, the image height is negative. Given the image distance, the
mirror equation can be used to determine the focal length, but to do so a value for the object
distance is also needed. The object and image heights, together with the knowledge that the
image is inverted, allows us to calculate the magnification m. The magnification m is given
by m = –di/do (Equation 25.4), where di and do are the image and object distances,
respectively.

ho −1 or f = 9 .1 cm 23. REASONING Since the image is behind the mirror, the image is virtual, and the image
distance is negative, so that di = −34.0 cm . The object distance is given as do = 7.50 cm .
The mirror equation relates these distances to the focal length f of the mirror. If the focal
length is positive, the mirror is concave. If the focal length is negative, the mirror is convex.

111
mirror. It is found from
+=
(Equation 25.3), where di is the distance between the
d o di f
mirror and the image, and f is the focal length of the mirror. We are told that the image
appears in front of the mirror, so, according to the sign conventions for spherical mirrors,
the image distance must be positive: di = +97 cm.

( +42 cm ) ( +97 cm ) = 74 cm 25. REASONING Since the focal length f and the object distance do are known, we will use the
mirror equation to determine the image distance di. Then, knowing the image distance as well
as the object distance, we will use the magnification equation to find the magnification m.

obtain the image distance from the mirror equation:
