# What is the image formed by a concave mirror?

## What is the image formed by a concave mirror?

Concave mirrors form both real and virtual images. When the concave mirror is placed very close to the object, a virtual and magnified image is obtained and if we increase the distance between the object and the mirror, the size of the image reduces and real images are formed.

### What are the characteristics of image formed by a convex mirror?

The image formed by a convex mirror is always Diminished, Virtual and Erect.

#### How many images are formed by convex mirror?

Convex mirrors always form virtual images. This is because the focal point and the centre of curvature of the convex mirror are imaginary points and that cannot be reached. So the image is formed inside the mirror and cannot be projected on a screen.

What image does a convex lens form?

A convex lens forms a virtual image when the object is kept between the lens and its focus but the image formed is an enlarged one.

What type of images are formed by convex and concave mirrors?

Plane mirrors and convex mirrors only produce virtual images. Only a concave mirror is capable of producing a real image and this only occurs if the object is located a distance greater than a focal length from the mirror’s surface.

## What kind of image is formed by a convex lens?

virtual image
A convex lens forms a virtual image when the object is kept between the lens and its focus but the image formed is an enlarged one.

### What type of image is formed by a convex lens?

#### How do you find the image in a convex mirror?

The ray diagram above illustrates that the image of an object in front of a convex mirror will be located at a position behind the convex mirror. Furthermore, the image will be upright, reduced in size (smaller than the object), and virtual. This is the type of information that we wish to obtain from a ray diagram.

What happens to the image formed by the convex lens?

Image Formation by Convex Lens In case of a convex lens, if we bring the object close to the lens, the size of the image keeps on increasing. As you bring the object more close to the lens, we get the image all the more enlarged.

What type of image images are formed by a a convex mirror b a concave mirror which mirror has a wider field of view?

Answer: Concave mirrors can form real images. Convex mirrors always forms virtual image.

## How many images are formed in convex?

The characteristics of an image formed by a flat mirror are: (a) The image and object are the same distance from the mirror, (b) The image is a virtual image, and (c) The image is situated behind the mirror. A convex mirror is a diverging mirror and forms only one type of image, namely a virtual image.
