# An object 3 cm tall is located 24 cm from a concave mirror with a focal length of 12 cm.?

An object 3 cm tall is located 24 cm from a concave mirror with a focal length of 12 cm. Since the focal length is half the radius of curvature, the object is located at the center

of curvature of the mirror.

a) Using the object-image distance formula, find the location of the image

b) Calculate the magnification of this image.

c) Is the image real or virtual, upright or inverted?

d) Trace two rays from the top of the object to confirm your results. Make the ray

trace roughly to scale; use a straight-edge (don’t draw free-hand)
