A production-line inspector wants a mirror that produces an image that is upright with a magnification of 7.5 when it is located 14.0 mm from a machine part. a. What kind of mirror would do this job? b. What is its radius of curvature?

Solution

VerifiedIn this problem, we need to find the type of mirror (concave $f>0$ or convex $f<0$) (part $a$), and its radius (part $b$). We know that the image is upright ($h_{i}>0$). Also, we know the magnification and the position of the object. To solve the problem, we are going to use several equations, the mirror equation $\frac{1}{f}= \frac{1}{d_{o}}+ \frac{1}{d_{i}}$, the magnification equation $M= -\frac{d_{i}}{d_{o}}= \frac{h_{i}}{h_{o}}$ and the relation between the focal length and the radius $r=2f$
