Class 7 Physics Light Spherical Mirror

Spherical Mirror

A curved shining surface of an object acts as a mirror.

  • Most common types of curved mirrors are called spherical mirrors.
  • Spherical mirrors are classified based on their reflective surface as one of two types, concave and convex.
  • When a part of sphere is cut, the inside part is called the concave side, while the outside part is called the convex side.
  • A common example is a stainless steel spoon whose inside part behaves as a concave and outer part behaves as a convex mirror.
