Question

When an object is placed at a distance of 15 cm from a concave mirror, its image is formed at 10 cm in front of the mirror. Calculate the focal length of the mirror.


Solution

According to mirror formula-

1/f = 1/v+1/u
where
f=focal length, v=image distance, u=object distance

v = -10cm (as object is on left side)

u = -15cm (as image formed is also on left side)

Therefore, 1/f = -1/10 + (-1/15)

1/f = -1/6

f = -6 cm
