History of Spherical Mirror -
It is plausible that early humans used aquatic bodies of water as mirrors. The first manufactured mirrors that are known to have existed were polished stone artefacts. Around 500 AD, the Chinese people first used silver and mercury amalgams to create mirrors. Curved polished iron mirrors were employed by Claudius Ptolemy in a variety of research.
Focal Length -
- The focal length of a mirror (or lens) is the separation between its pole and focal point. It can also be measured as the distance between its optical centre and pole.
- The point at which a parallel beam of light is "focused" after reflection in the mirror is known as the focal point (F) of a mirror.
- For a convex lens and convex mirror, the focal length is assumed to be positive.
- For a concave lens and a concave mirror, it is regarded negatively.
- The symbol for it is f.
