A periscope consists of two flat mirrors and is used for viewing objects when an obstacle impedes direct viewing. Suppose Curious George is looking through a periscope, in which the two flat mirrors are separated by a distance $L=0.400 \mathrm{~m}$, at the Man in the Yellow Hat, whose hat is at $d_0=3.00 \mathrm{~m}$ from the upper mirror. What is the distance $D$ of the final image of the yellow hat from the lower mirror?

Solution

Verified**Given:**

In this problem we consider a periscope that uses two plane mirrors that are separated from each other by a distance:

$L =0.400\text{ m}$

The distance of the object from the upper flat mirror is:

$d_o=3.00\text{ m}$

**Requirements:**

We need to calculate the distance of the final image of the object from the lower plane mirror:

$D=?$
