Rays from Sun converge at a point 15 cm in front of a concave mirror. Where should an object be placed so that size of its image is equal to the size of the object?
A. 15 cm in front of the mirror
B. 30 cm in front of the mirror
C. between 15 cm and 30 cm in front of the mirror
D. more than 30 cm in front of the mirror
We know that in case of a concave mirror, when the object is placed at infinity, then the light rays after reflection gets converged at focus of the concave mirror. Sun is at the infinity point, So focal length of the mirror will be 15 cm. The object should be placed between at 2f to obtain the same size of image as that of the object.
So, object distance = 2f = 2 x 15 = 30 cm

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
