  1. Which of the two mirrors is converging : concave or convex ?

 

  1. What is the relation between focal length and radius of curvature of a concave mirror ? Does the same relation hold for a convex mirror ?

 

Answer:

  1. From 4 × 10–7 m to 8 × 10–7 m.

 

  1. Yes, 3 × 10–8 m/s.

 

  1. 3 × 10–8 m/s.

 

  1. The straight line path along which light travels is called ray of light.

 

  1. A narrow beam of light is called pencil of light.

 

  1. Silver metal is the best reflector of light.

 

  1. No.

 

  1. Angle of incidence is the angle between the incident ray and normal to the mirror.

 

  1. The angle between the reflected ray and normal to the mirror.

 

  1. ∠i = 0°.

 

  1. No.

 

  1. Yes.

 

  1. Yes.

 

  1. Yes

 

  1. No, they only appear to pass through a virtual image.

 

  1. Concave mirror and convex mirror.

 

  1. Join that particular point to the centre of curvature of the mirror.

 

  1. Convex mirror

 

  1. Concave mirror

 

Yes, the same relation holds for a convex mirror.
