Learning Goals
 Understand how to draw ray diagrams for concave
mirrors
 Be able to identify when images are real or virtual
Success Criteria
 To draw at least one ray diagram for concave
mirrors and to identify if the image is real or
virtual.
Curved Mirrors
 Mirrors with a single curvature find
many uses in our homes and optical
devices. To make a curved mirror,
you must make part of the surface of
the sphere reflective. There are two
types of curved mirrors:
 Concave (converging)
 Convex (diverging).
Types of Curved Mirrors
1. Concave (Converging) Mirror:
• Shaped like part of the surface of a sphere in
which the inner surface is reflective.
• For example, similar to the surface of a bowl.
2. Convex (Diverging) Mirror:
• Shaped like part of the surface of a sphere in
which the outer surface is reflective.
Concave Mirror
Terminology
 Centre of Curvature:
 The centre of the sphere whose surface has been used to make the mirror.
Its the point at which the normals meet. Labelled C.
 Principal Axis:
 The line through the centre of curvature to the midpoint of the mirror.
 Vertex:
 The point where the principal axis meets the mirror. Labelled V.
 Focus or Focal Point:
 The point at which light rays parallel to the principal axis converge (meet at
a common point) when they are reflected off a concave mirror. Labelled F.

Locating Images in Concave Mirrors
 To determine the image of an
object in front of a concave
mirror, you need to draw at least
two incident rays from the top of
the object.
RULES:
 1. A light ray parallel to the
principal axis is reflected through
the focus.
Locating Images in
Concave Mirrors
RULES ... Cont`d:
 2. A light ray through the centre
of curvature is reflected back into
itself.
 3. A ray through the focus will
reflect parallel to the principal
axis.
 4. A ray aimed at the vertex will
follow through the law of
reflection.
EXAMPLE ... FIND THE IMAGE
Recall what a REAL IMAGE is ...
A Real Image is an image that can be seen on a
paper screen as a result of light rays actually
arriving at the image location.
Real Image:
 Formed when reflected rays (not extended rays)
meet
 Located in the front of the mirror
 You need a screen to see the real image

JIGSAW
There are 5 scenarios to investigate with Concave mirrors.
You will be placed in groups and assigned a scenario to
work on, during which time you will become the `expert`
on that scenario.
Afterwards, everyone will JIGSAW into another group
where you will all have a turn to `teach` your new group
members about your concave mirror scenario.
Please reference your textbook (p.422-424) during this
activity.

The following 5 slides are for reference
purposes.
Case 1: The object is located beyond C
- When an object is located beyond C, the image will always be located
between C and the Focus.
- The image will be inverted.
- The image is reduced in size.
- The image is real.
Case 2: The object is located at C
- When an object is located at C, the image will also be located C.
- The image will be inverted.
- The image is the same size.
- The image is real.
Case 3: The object is located between C and F
- When an object is located between C and F, the image will be located
beyond C.
- The image is inverted.
- The image is larger.
- The image is real.
Case 4: The object is located at F
- When the object is located at F, there is no image formed. WHY
- Light rays from the same point do not converge. Reflected rays are
parallel and do not form images.
Case 5: The object is located in front of F
(between F and the mirror)
- When an object is located between F
and the mirror, the image will always
be located somewhere on the
opposite side of the mirror.
- The image is upright.
- The image is larger.
- The image is virtual. This is because
the rays diverge and our brain
extrapolates the rays backwards to
where they appear to originate.
