Q: List the materials required for conducting an experiment to find the focal length of a concave mirror. Explain the experimental process also.
A: Materials required: 1) Concave mirror 2) Candle 3) Paper screen 4) v-stand 5) Meter Scale
Place the concave mirror on v-stand, a candle, paper screen and meter scale as shown in the figure.
Put the candle at different distances from the mirror along the scale and by moving the screen find the position where the sharp
image is formed on the paper screen.
In each case note the distance (u) of the candle from the mirror and the respective screen distance (v) from the mirror
Tabulate the observations.
Find the average of focal lengths (f) obtained.
This average value of focal length (f) is the focal length of the concave mirror.
