An object 2 cm in size is placed 30cm in front of a concave mirror of focal length 15cm. At what distance from the mirror should a screen be placed in order to obtain a sharp image? What will be the nature and the size of the image formed? Draw a ray diagram to show the formation of the image in this case.
According to the question;
Object distance (u) = -30cm;
Focal length (f) = -15cm;
Image distance = v;
By mirror formula;
⇒ v = 30cm.
Thus, screen should be placed 30cm in front of the mirror (Centre of curvature) to obtain the real image.
Height of object h1= 2cm;
Magnification = =
Putting values of v and u
Height of image is 2 cm.
Negative sign means image is inverted.
Thus real, inverted image of size same as that of object is formed.
Diagram below shows the image formation.

Mr. Raghav, grade 6 teacher find that his students do not draw when he draws on the board. Every time he had to turn towards them to see whether they draw and label the diagrams. Arav, one of his student fixed two big convex mirrors at the two sides of the black board. With this Mr. Raghav was able to draw and also supervise his students through the mirror. All the students started doing their work property.

(ii) What value did Arav and Mr. Raghav show?All In One Science
