- 2. Curved Mirrors <ul><li>Concave </li></ul>Convex “converging” mirror “diverging” mirror
- 3. Convex & Concave Mirrors <ul><li>Which part of this circle is showing a convex mirror? </li></ul><ul><li>Which part is a concave mirror? </li></ul><ul><li>How did you know? </li></ul>Hint: You must first identify where the light rays are coming from and thus locating the reflective surface.

- 18. Why do rays that go through the centre of curvature reflect back on itself? <ul><li>Any line through C is the same as the …. of a circle </li></ul><ul><li>The line through C has an angle of …. relative to the mirror </li></ul><ul><li>This line is also known as …. </li></ul><ul><li>The angle of …. equals the angle of incidence which explains why this line reflects back on itself </li></ul>

- 52. Locating an Image in a Curved Mirror <ul><li>Pick a point on the object (usually the top of the object). </li></ul><ul><li>Send any two incident rays off the point on the object (follow the light ray rules for curved mirrors choosing 2 of 4 possibilities). </li></ul><ul><li>Draw the reflected ray as a solid line (on the same side of the mirror as the object). </li></ul><ul><li>Find the intersection of the reflected rays. If the rays do not intersect, extend the reflected rays into the virtual side of the mirror (use dotted line) until they do. </li></ul><ul><li>Use the point of intersection to locate the image.
