“How does a mirror that bends inwards behave?”
Mirrors come in all different shapes and sizes. Some are straight like a piece of paper, some bend outwards, some inwards. However, what are some of the defining physical characteristics of mirrors? Well, let’s analyze it with our scientific mindsets. When an object is beyond the center of curvature, then an image real, inverted, and minimized will be produced. If the object is at the center of curvature, then a real inverted image of equal size will be produced. If the image is between the center length and focal point, then an image real, inverted, and magnified will be produced. If the object is at the focus, then the image will form at – infinity. And if the object is just beyond the focal point, then a magnified virtual image will be formed. Concave mirrors have numerous applications, ranging from the headlights of cars to shaving mirrors and even to visual bomb detectors!
