## Homework Statement

1) A 24 cd point source lamp and a 73 cd point source lamp cast equal illuminances on a wall. If the 24 cd lamp is 6.3m from the wall, how far from the wall is the 73 cd lamp? Answer in units of m.

2) Two lamps illuminate a screen equally. The first lamp has an intensity of 100 cd and is 6.7m from the screen. The second lamp is 7.7 m from the screen. What is the intensity of the second lamp? Answer in units of cd.

3) Determine the minimum height of a vertical flat mirror in which a person 67 in. in height can see his full image. Answer in units of in. (Hint: draw a ray diagram)

4)A concave mirror has a focal length of 24.8cm. Determin the object position for which the resulting image is upright and 4 times the size of the object. Answer in units of cm.

## Homework Equations

Focal length= [tex]\frac{Radius}{2}[/tex]

[tex]\frac{1}{focal length}[/tex] = [tex]\frac{1}{distance of object}[/tex] + [tex]\frac{1}{distance of image}[/tex]

magnification = [tex]\frac{-distance of image}{distance of object}[/tex] = [tex]\frac{height of image}{height of object}[/tex]

## The Attempt at a Solution

My teacher told us we wouldn't need to know the equations for light intensity, so I have no idea how to solve 1&2.

3) I drew the ray diagram like it said and found the area of mirror needed to see the image. But obviously it's not to scale, and I doubt I could measure it and scale it well enough to get an accurate answer, because the system we use to turn in homework likes exact answers that are at most +/-1% off.

4)I tried using this [tex]\frac{1}{focal length}[/tex]=[tex]\frac{1}{distance of object}[/tex]+[tex]\frac{1}{distance of image}[/tex]

I knew that the distance of the image was 4 times the size of the object so i substituted distance of image with 4(distance of object). Crunching the numbers I got 31, which doesn't make sense because if the object is outside the focal point of a concave mirror, then the image will appear smaller, not larger. I think I messed up because it says the size is 4 times larger, which probably means height, not distance. But, I'm not sure what to do.
