The experiments on reflection in convex mirrors serve to
reinforce the knowledge gained in the experiments on plane and
concave mirrors, and further to improve experimental
On the one hand, the goal of this experiment is the observation
of reflection in a convex mirror, and while doing so to
experimentally determine the focal point and the focal
On the other hand, by observing one selected light beam the
students should be led to the realisation that the laws of
reflection determined for the plane mirror are general truths; and
thus can also be applied to convex mirrors.
- Multifunctional light box - All-in-one: Can be used for geometric optics on the table, colour mixing and on an optical bench
- Extension with others sets at anytime, no additional light sources needed, recognition value for students
How is light reflected in a convex mirror?
- Investigate the reflection of light in a convex mirror;
determine the focal point and the focal length
- Determine the angle at which a selected light beam is
