Question

If a concave mirror has a focal length of 10 cm, find the two positions where an object can be placed to give, in each case, an image twice the height of the object.


Solution

f = -10cm
case 1: m=2 (Image is virtual and erect)
m equals negative v over u 2 equals negative v over u rightwards double arrow v equals space minus 2 u 1 over v plus 1 over u equals 1 over f fraction numerator 1 over denominator negative 2 u end fraction plus 1 over u equals fraction numerator 1 over denominator negative 10 end fraction fraction numerator 1 over denominator 2 u end fraction equals fraction numerator negative 1 over denominator 10 end fraction u space equals space minus 5 c m
object is placed 5cm infront of mirror.

Case 2: m=-2 (Image is real and inverted)
m equals negative v over u minus 2 equals negative v over u rightwards double arrow v equals space 2 u 1 over v plus 1 over u equals 1 over f fraction numerator 1 over denominator 2 u end fraction plus 1 over u equals fraction numerator 1 over denominator negative 10 end fraction fraction numerator 3 over denominator 2 u end fraction equals fraction numerator negative 1 over denominator 10 end fraction u space equals space minus 15 c m
object is placed 15cm infront  of mirror .
