Convex Mirrors

Basic objective of this lecture is to present on Convex Mirrors. Convex mirrors reflect light outwards, therefore they are not used to focus light. A convex mirror has the same basic properties as a concave mirror but its focus and center are located behind the mirror. This means a convex mirror has a negative focal length (used later in the mirror equation). Light rays reflected from convex mirrors always diverge, so only virtual images will be formed.
