6. What is lateral displacement? What are the factors that affect it?

Long Answer Question:

1. An object 3 cm high is placed at 27cm from a convex mirror of radius of curvature 36cm. Find the position, nature and size of the image.

2. An object of size 3 cm is placed at a distance 27c m from pole of a concave mirror which produce a real image  6 cm high,
(a) What is focal length of the mirror?
(b) Find the position of the images.

3. A square wire of side 3 cm is placed 25 cm away from a concave mirror of focal length 10cm. What is the area enclosed by the image of the wire? The centre of the wire is on the axis of mirror with its two sides normal to the axis.

4. A small candle 2.5cm in size is placed at 27 cm in front of a concave mirror of radius of curvature 0.36 m. At what distance from the mirror should a screen be placed in order to receive a sharp image? Describe
the nature and size of image if the candle is moved closed to the mirror, how would the screen have to
be moved?
