Free Physics Animation - Click on preview : Application of convex mirror as a rear view mirror

Application of a rear view mirror why convex why not plane mirror
How a rear view mirror, used in a car, ensures safety
A plane mirror used has a lower range as compared to the convex mirror
Details of the animation/ movie /software

Rear view mirrors of cars are also convex mirrors as they enable the driver to see a wide area of the road behind the car.

The convex mirror makes the rays of a parallel beam diverge as if they were coming from its focus, thereby producing a diminished virtual image, which the driver can see.

Convex mirrors reflect rays outwards: the rays coming from a convex mirror appear to come from a single point behind the mirror.

An image is formed behind the mirror and is smaller than the object. Convex mirrors can capture rays from a wide area.

Comparison between a plane mirror and a convex mirror would show that the field of view in the case of the convex mirror is much wider than a plane mirror.

If you are still unclear about the concepts, please refer the animation below.

Q & A
Q2: In which cases we can use covex and concave mirrors? Upplapu Srinivasa raju 19/8/2010
Q3: what is pasteurizer efficiency gyanranjan 30/12/2008
Q4: from my childhood onwards Iam having very fear in solving problems.can u help to over come this?please...... rama kumar 9/7/2007
Ans: Many teachers discourage asking of questions and worse make wisecracks in place of answers. This turns lot of students off from fulfilling their curiosity and learning becomes a chore. To solve numerical take up first the easy one and do not, repeat do not give up until you have solved it, slowly tackle tougher ones and till you become confident. Remember efforts fail, person doesn’t. So, move forward in a step-by-step manner. One can build an empire if one places a brick at a time.
Q5: we represent WORWDONE in (n-m) OR (J);BUT we dont represent moment in "joules",why? rama kumar 26/4/2007
Ans: Torque is a measure of force acting on an object to cause that object to rotate. However, torque is not energy. Torque or moment is vector (pseudo) while work done or energy is scalar, energy can be represented by both force dot distance (N.m) and joules in SI units but torque is the cross product between the distance vector and the force vector, hence it can only be expressed in N.m
Q6: what is differnce beyween STEAM & VAPOUR rama kumar 16/4/2007
