Chapter 23 Mirrors and Lenses Our eyes can see objects of certain sizes at certain distances and at certain locations To overcome these limitations optical instruments have been developed Many of these instruments are based on mirrors and lenses When we look at an object via a mirror or a lens we look at the IMAGE of the object Images can be larger than smaller than or same as the object Images can have the same orientation or the inverse orientation as the object Images can be real or virtual 1 Flat Mirrors When an object is placed in front of a at mirror an image of the object is formed39 The image is as far behind as the object is in 39ont image dirtance q object distance 9 The image is unmagni ed The image is virtual light does not pass through the image point light appears to diverge from that point The image is upright having the same orientation as the object There is an apparent Ie right reversal How to find the location of the image using light rays Steps to determine the image Draw a special ray from the object to the mirror Draw the re ected ray according to the law of re ection Draw a second ray from the object to the mirror Draw the re ected ray Extend both re ected rays in the reverse direction The intersection is the location ofthe image it 1s always necessary to follow at least two rays of light as they re ect from the mirror Example In order to see the full height of yourself how large a at l mirror will you need and how will you hang the mirror Question How does the rearview mirror work for the Day and Night settings gas L mirror 2 Images formed by Spherical Mirrors Muni A spherical mirrorhas the shape of a quot segment of a sphere mm 4 meuu A concave spherical mirrorhas the silvered surface on the inner concave side ofthe curve A convex spherical mirror has the silvered surface on the outer convex side ofthe curve A concave mirror Image formed by a concave mirror Hmm Steps to determine the image location Draw two special rays from the object to the mirror Draw the re ected rays according to the law of re ection The intersection is the location ofthe image Mirror Equation x The magni cation is i r 7 The relationship between q and is The mm39or equation When the object is very far away the incident rays become parallel This point is called the focal point F and the distance qR2 is called the focal length f m w 3
