1

mirror equation (definition)

the quantitative relationship between the object distance, the image distance, and the focal length

2

object distance

do

3

image distance

di

4

focal length

f

5

mirror equation

1/f = 1/do + 1/di

6

magnification equation (definition)

the ratio of the image distance and object distance to the ratio of the image height and object height

7

image height

hi

8

object height

ho

9

magnification

M

10

magnification equation

M = hi/ho = -di/do

M = hi/ho
hi/ho = -di/do
M = -di/do

11

if f is +, the mirror is ______

concave

12

if f is -, the mirror is ______

13

if di is +, the image is ____ and located _____________

real / on the side of the object

14

if di is -, the image is ______ and located ___________

virtual / behind the mirror

15

if hi is +, the image is _____ and ______

upright / virtual

16

if hi is -, the image is ______ and ____

inverted / real

17

if M is less than 1, the image is ______ than the object

smaller

18

if M is greater than 1, the image is _____ than the object

larger

19

if M is +, the image is _____ and ______

upright / virtual

20

if M is -, the image is _____ and _____

inverted / real
