Question about mirrors

  1. Dec 7, 2013 #1

    I have a quick question of clarification on convex mirrors. If I have a single convex mirror, is it ever possible that image distance is greater than focal length? Let's assume we are dealing with a real object.

    You should be able to answer that question with a simple ray diagram.

    Note: the traditional arrow in the ray diagram is usually take to point at a particular place on a real object.
