A man standing in front of a special mirror finds his image having a very small head, a fat body and legs of normal size. What is the shape of :
(a) top part of the mirror?
(b) middle part of the mirror ?
(c) bottom part of the mirror? Give reasons for your choice.
(a) the shape of top part of the mirror is Convex mirror as it forms smaller image
(b) the shape of middle part of the mirror is Concave mirror as it forms bigger image
(c) the shape of bottom part of the mirror is Plane mirror as it forms image of same size.

List the new Cartesian sign convention for reflection of light by spherical mirrors. Draw a diagram and apply these conventions for calculating the focal length and nature of a spherical mirror which forms 1/3 times magnified virtual image of an object placed 18 cm if front of it.All In One Science

List the sign conventions for reflection of light by spherical mirror. Draw a diagram and apply these conventions in the determination of focal length of a spherical mirror which forms three times magnified real image of an object placed. 16 cm in front of it.All In One Science
Draw a diagram to show how a converging lens held close to the eye acts as a magnifying glass. Why is it usual to choose a lens of short focal length for this purpose rather than one of long focal length?Lakhmir Singh & Manjit Kaur - Physics
