Concave Mirrors - Introduction

We will use ray diagrams to find the images produced by concave mirrors, and ultimately the Mirage®.

The light rays are assumed to bounce off the mirror like a ball. Formally stated, "the angle of incidence equals the angle of reflection."

(If you feel that you need to take one step back before you're ready for concave mirrors see our flat mirror tutorials.)
