The Examination of a Curved Mirror

When we say "curved mirrors" we mean mirrors the are shaped like a sphere or a globe.  These are called called spherical mirrors.  There a generally two types of spherical mirrors.

  • Convex Mirrors
  • Concave Mirrors

Think of a globe or sphere, like a balloon or ball.  Now think of what it would look like if you sliced part of the sphere.  A convex mirror is silvered on the outside of the sphere and a concave mirror are silvered on the inside of the sphere.
