5.What are the values of (i) Angle of incidence and (ii) Angle of reflection for normal
incidence on a plane surface?

6.A beam of light is incident on a convex m irro r parallel to its principal axis. Show
diagrammatically, the path of these rays after reflection from the mirror.

7. Find the power of a concave lens of focal length 2m?

8.W ith respect to air the refractive index of ice is 1.31 and that of rock salt is 1.54. Calculate
the refractive index of rock salt with respect to ice?

9.An object is placed at a distance of 12 cm in front of a concave mirror. It forms a real

image four times larger than the object. Calculate the position of the image.

10.Draw a ray diagram to represent the nature, position and size of the image formed by a
convex lens for the object placed at (1) infinity (2) Between F1 and optical centre (O).

11.A convex m irro r used as a rear view m irro r for a bus, has a focal length of 200 cm. If a
scooter is located at 100 cm. from this mirror, find the position, nature and magnification of
the image formed in the mirror.

12.A convex lens has a focal length of 10 cm. At what distance from the lens should the
object be placed so that it forms a real and inverted image 20 cm. away from the lens? What
would be the size of the image formed if the object is 2 cm high? W ith the help of a ray
diagram show the formation of the image by the lens in this case?

Chapter: Light- Numerical Practice questions class 10
All questions are compulsory
1 A concave mirror produces a real image 10mm tall, of an object 2.5 mm tall placed at 5 cm from the mirror. Calculate the
focal length and position of the image.
2 An object is placed at a large distance in front of a convex mirror of radius of curvature 40cm. How far is the image behind
the mirror?
3 An object is placed at 15 cm from a convex mirror of radius of curvature 90 cm. Calculate the position of the image and
magnification.
4 The image formed by a convex mirror of a focal length 30 cm is a quarter of the object. What is the distance of the object
from the mirror?
5 When an object is placed at a distance of 60cm from convex mirror, the magnification produced is ½. Where should the
object be place to get a magnification of 1/3?
6 An object is placed 18 cm from a mirror, if the image is formed at 4cm to the right of the mirror. Calculate its focal length. Is
the mirror convex or concave? What is the nature of the image? What is the radius of curvature?
7 A convex mirror is used for mirror view on an automobile has a radius of curvature 3m, if a bus is located 5m from the
mirror, find the position, nature and magnification?
8 An object 3cm high is held at a distance of 50cm, from a diverging mirror of focal length 25cm, find the nature, position and
size of image
9 A converging mirror of focal length 20 cm forms an image two times the size of an object. Calculate the two possible
distances of the object?
10 The linear magnification of a convex mirror of focal length 15cm is 1/3, what is the distance of the object from the focus of
the mirror?
11 The focal length of a convex mirror is 12.5cm. Calculate the distance of the center of curvature from the pole and the
focus.
12 Find the focal length of the concave mirror of focal length 15cm that produces 4 times larger real image of an object held at
5cm from the mirror.
13 Draw any three ray diagrams to show how the size and nature of image of an object change when it moves from center of
curvature of concave mirror towards the pole of the mirror.
