Hello everyone, I tried a problem on concave mirros and i have no idea why this is wrong. I was given enough info but still didn't like it. Here is the problem:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Spherical mirrors. Object O stands on the central axis of a spherical mirror. The table gives object distance p, the type of mirror, and focal distance f. Find the image distance i and the lateral magnification m of the object, including signs.

p (cm) = +25

Mirror = concave

f (cm) = *17

Find i(cm) and m.

Idon't know what the *17 means though! I just took it as a the foocal distance f = 17cm.

Any idea where i f'ed it up? thanks!
