Question

Why we use minus sign in the formula of magnification of mirror?

m= -v/u


Solution

negative sign is used on the linear magnification equation as a reminder that all real images are inverted. If the image is virtual, the image distance will be negative, and the magnification will therefore be positive for the erect image.
