Light from a lamp is collected with the help of these concave mirrors. A type of spherical mirror because they have a shape that can be created by slicing off a section of a sphere, and thus a mirror who's reflecting surface curves inwardly.These mirrors are also known as Converging Mirrors as the light rays which hit the mirror converge/come together at a specific point. I will tell only 10 common Uses of Convex Mirror because there are many of them Concept: A convex mirror is also known as diverging mirror or the fish eye mirror. The concave mirror is mounted on the microscope such that it can be turned towards the desired direction. Dentists and ear, nose and throat doctors use concave mirrors during examinations to see a larger image of what they are examining. Besides, we use the mirror equation to deal with a concave mirror. Unlike convex mirrors, the image formed by a concave mirror shows different image types depending on the distance between the object and the mirror. A concave mirror has a reflective surface that is curved inward and away from the light source. Concave mirrors are also used in solar-powered gadgets and visual bomb detectors. Concave mirrors are used in car headlights, flashlights, telescopes, microscopes, satellite dishes and camera flashes. A concave mirror is a type of mirror that is bent towards the inwards in the middle. The reflective surface of the convex mirror bulges towards the light source. Concave mirrors reflect light inward to one focal point. The use of these diagrams was demonstrated earlier in Lesson 3.Ray diagrams provide useful information about object-image relationships, yet fail to provide the information in a quantitative form. Inwardly curved (caved in) mirror. Today, two types of telescopes are widely used: refractor telescopes, which employ lenses, and reflector telescopes, which have mirrors. Examples: A makeup mirror, shaving mirror Ray diagrams can be used to determine the image location, size, orientation and type of image formed of objects when placed at a given location in front of a concave mirror. In a reflector telescope, light from the object of interest enters the far end of the telescope and strikes a concave mirror at the end closest to the viewer. In addition, on looking in this mirror, you will feel that you are looking in a cave.
