The image behind a convex mirror (radius of curvature = 71 cm) is located 24 cm from the mirror.
(a) Where is the object located?

  • physics -

    The focal length of the mirror is
    f = -R/2 = -35.5 cm

    The image location is

    Di = -24 cm,
    since it behind the mirror.

    Use the basic equation:

    1/Do + 1/Di = 1/f = -1/35.5

    1/Do = 1/24 - 1/35.5

    Solve for object distance Do
