Question 2. Asked on :16 October 2019:08:02:06 PM

#### Why convex mirror is used in rear view mirrors and not concave mirror?

-Added by Himanshi Verma Science » Light Reflection And Refraction

priyanshu kumar

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.

Question 3. Asked on :16 October 2019:07:59:32 PM

#### Why magnification is taken negative for real images and positive for virtual images?

-Added by Himanshi Verma Science » Light Reflection And Refraction

Nishant Verma

If image is real, it will be inverted which means height of image will be taken as negative. Also, the height of object is always positive.

Now as magnification = Height of image / Height

Therefore, in case of real image,

Magnification = Height of image (-) / height of object (+)=Negative.
So, Magnification will be negative.
Similarly, if image is virtual, it will be erect.

Therefore, in case of virtual image,
Magnification = Height of image (+) / height of object (+)= Positive

So, Magnification will be positive. of object.

Question 4. Asked on :16 October 2019:07:58:12 PM

#### How are we able to see distant and nearby objects clearly? Which part of eye helps in changing curvature of lens? Why no image is formed at blind spot?

-Added by Himanshi Verma Science » Light Reflection And Refraction

priyanshu kumar

We can see distant and near objects clearly because of the property of accommodation of eye. Accommodation is the name given to the ability of the lens of the eye to change its focal length and produce focused images of both distant and near objects on the retina. Ciliary muscle helps in changing curvature of the lens. They are attached to the lens and contract or release to change the lens shape and curvature.No image is formed at blind spot because there are no photoreceptors, i.e., cones and rods to detect the light and send it to brain.

Question 5. Asked on :16 October 2019:07:54:35 PM

#### Explain why a ray of light passing through the centre of curvature of concave minor gets reflected along the same path.

-Added by Himanshi Verma Science » Light Reflection And Refraction

priyanshu kumar

The light falling on the centre of curvature is reflected back along the same path because the incident ray falls on the mirror along the normal to the reflecting surface.

Question 6. Asked on :10 October 2019:07:56:40 PM

#### What is uses of convex mirror?

-Added by Himanshi Verma Science » Light Reflection And Refraction

Rohit Rajput

Convex mirror are preferred because they always give an erect thought outwards thus convex mirror enable the drive to view much largest area than would be possible with a plane mirror.

Question 7. Asked on :10 October 2019:07:45:55 PM

#### Diffrence between concave mirror and convex mirror?

-Added by Aarohi Chauhan Science » Light Reflection And Refraction

priyanshu kumar
concave mirror is a spherical mirror in which the reflecting surface and the center of curvature fall on the same side of the mirror. ... A convex mirror is a spherical mirror in which the reflecting surface and the center of curvature lie on the opposite sides of the mirror.

Question 10. Asked on :10 October 2019:07:28:05 PM

#### What is reflection of light?

-Added by Aarohi Chauhan Science » Light Reflection And Refraction

Rohit Rajput

Reflection is when light bounces off an object. If the surface is smooth and shiny, like glass, water or polished metal, the light will reflect at the same angle as it hit the surface. This is called specular reflection

#### Why earth wire is necessary to earth metallic appliance?

-Added by Himanshi Verma Science » Light Reflection And Refraction

Himanshi Verma

The metallic body of electric appliances is connected to the earth wire so that any leakage of electric current is transferred to the ground. This prevents severe electric shock to the user. That is why earthing of the electrical appliances is necessary.
