CONCEPTS
1) Plane mirror :- A mirror in which reflecting surface is plane
2) Spherical mirror :- A mirror in which reflecting surface is spherical
3) Convex mirror :- If the reflecting surface is curved outwards
4) Concave mirror :- If the reflecting surface is curved inwards
LAW
LAWS OF REFLECTION :-” Angle of incidence is equal to angle of reflection.
Incident ray, reflected ray, normal all lie in the same plane.”
SUMMARY
Laws of reflection states about reflection. Reflecting medium are of two types
plane mirror and spherical mirror. A mirror in which reflecting surface is plane is called
plane mirror . . A mirror in which reflecting surface is spherical is called spherical mirror.
spherical mirror are of two types Convex mirror and Concave mirror. A mirror in which
reflecting surface is curved inwards is called concave mirror. A mirror in which
reflecting surface is curved outwards is called is Convex mirror. In the plane mirror image is
obtained at the same distance from the mirror and have the same size. Image formation in
the convex mirror is small, virtual and inverted. In concave mirror image may be small,
large, real and virtual. Laws of reflection states that :-” Angle of incidence is equal to angle
of reflection. Incident ray, reflected ray, normal all lie in the same plane.” All these mirrors
have many uses in daily life situations. Plane mirror is used to reflect light and view our
face. Convex mirror is used as rearview mirror in a vehicle. In medical field, search light,
telescope Concave mirror is used. Thus the e-content can be conveyed very easily and
clearly to the students. It will definitely motivate them to learn. By using the wide scope of e-
content we can make the teaching learning process more effective.
