# Can convex mirror give enlarged image?

## Can convex mirror give enlarged image?

The images formed by a convex mirror are always erect and enlarged.

## Can we obtain an enlarged and erect image by a convex mirror?

We can obtain an enlarged and erect image by a convex mirror. A concave lens always forms a virtual image. We can obtain a real, enlarged and inverted image by a concave mirror.

Does convex mirror form erect?

Plane mirrors and convex mirrors will always produce an upright image. A concave mirror will only produce an upright image if the object is located in front of the focal point.

What type of images are formed by convex mirrors?

Virtual, erect, and diminished images are always formed with convex mirrors, irrespective of the distance between the object and the mirror.

### Why is it not possible to capture an image formed by a convex mirror for Class 7?

It always forms virtual, erect, and diminished images irrespective of the distance between the object and the mirror. From the above explanation, we can conclude that we cannot capture the image produced by a convex mirror because it forms a diminished (very small) image and that too behind the mirror.

### Why is concave mirror used and not convex mirror?

Convex mirror is commonly used in rear view mirrors in vehicles because it gives an erect, virtual, full size diminished image of distant objects with a wider field of view. Thus, convex mirrors enable the driver to view much larger area which is not possible with a concave mirror.

How is an image formed in a convex mirror?

Convex mirrors always form virtual images. This is because the focal point and the centre of curvature of the convex mirror are imaginary points and that cannot be reached. So the image is formed inside the mirror and cannot be projected on a screen.

When can a convex mirror create a real image?

Yes, only when the object is virtual and is placed between F and P. Fig Shows a convex mirror exposed to a converging beam which converges to a point lies between F and P. v=-xff0-x, v becomes negative(real image) only when x

#### Why do convex mirrors form smaller images?

A convex mirror bends light as it reflects the light, and the farther away a point is from the center, the more the light is bent. As a result, an image formed in a convex mirror is smaller than an image in a plane (flat) mirror.

#### What is size of convex mirror?

Polycarbonate Convex Mirror, Size (cm): 45, 60, 80, 100

Size (cm) 45, 60, 80, 100

Why is not possible to capture an image formed by a convex mirror?

Is it possible to form an erect image smaller in size with a convex lens?

A convex mirror and a diverging lens always do this. A concave mirror and a converging lens can produce an upright image and and image reduced in size, but never one which is both upright AND reduced in size.

## Can a convex mirror ever form a real image?

Yes,convex mirror can form real image when the convergent rays are incident on the mirror.when convergent rays are incident yo convex mirror then the reflected rays intersect at a point in same side of mirror or in front of mirror and form real image. Originally Answered: Can a convex mirror ever form a real image?

## Which types of images are produced by convex mirrors?

located behind the convex mirror

• a virtual image
• an upright image
• reduced in size (i.e.,smaller than the object)
• How does a convex mirror form an image?

How does a convex mirror form an image? It bends the light toward a focal point. It bends the light away from a focal point. It bounces the light toward a focal point. It bounces the light away from a focal point. It bounces the light away from a focal point. You can use the curved part of a spoon as a mirror because it light.

Why can convex mirrors form only one type of image?

Why can convex mirrors form only one type of image? Light rays spread out and can only create a virtual image. Explain why a plane mirror cannot form a real image. Based on how the light rays hit the plane mirror it cannot make a real image. What causes light rays to bend?
