Convex miror's image distance

  1. Mar 28, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    An object is placed 32.7 cm from the reflecting surface of a convex mirror having a focal length of -10.8 cm. Determine the image distance.

    2. Relevant equations


    3. The attempt at a solution
    Could someone please tell me what equation I should use? Thanks!

    Object-image relation:

    1/s + 1/s' = 1/f


    s = object distance
    s' = image distance
    f = focal length
