Overview         (For age - group : Below 16 )

The animation deals with the following aspects of spherical mirrors : 1. Firstly why are they called spherical mirrors , where is the sphere 2.What is the nature of the image formed by spherical mirrors? 3. Can a real image be formed in a convex mirror? This animated physics (optics) software gives in-depth information about spherical mirrors and is very useful for students and teachers for e-learning purpose.

Properties of Spherical Mirrors:

How are spherical mirror made from a sphere ?

What is the difference between convex and concave mirror ?

What are center of curvature, radius of curvature, pole, principal
axis, focus, focal length and aperture

How do we calculate objective and image distance, magnification,
sign convention, focal length etc. Formula and tables are provided (In explanatory notes)

description of spherical mirrors concave mirror is silvered
Spherical mirrors - convex and concave mirrors- are a part of a sphere. Focus, pole and Radius and center of curvature are shown in the diagram
A concave mirror is made by silvering the surface on one side, rays parallel to the axis meet on the focus
convex mirror ray diverge out
ray diagram of a convex mirror
Convex mirror : the rays diverge out and apparently meet at focus
Ray diagram of reflection taking place on convex mirror
Details of the animation/ movie /software

A spherical mirror is made by silvering the piece of a glass, which is the part of a hollow sphere.

A concave mirror is made by silvering the outer or bulging surface of a part of a sphere and the reflection takes place from the hollow inner surface.

A convex mirror is made by silvering the inner surface such that the reflection takes place from the outer/bulging surface.

1. What is the nature of the image formed by spherical mirrors?
2. Where is the image formed if object is at a large distance from the mirror?
3. Can a real image be formed in a convex mirror?
4. Are the images formed in spherical mirrors of the same size as object?

For the answers to these questions refer animation below
