Top Q&A For: What is the focal length of a mirror

## If a mirror has a focal length of 15cm is it a concave mirror?

Concave mirrors curve inwards like a bowl. When rays of light parallel to the axis of a concave mirror strike its surface, they are all reflected through the focal point. The distance from the mirr... Read More »

## What is the focal length of a plane mirror?

The focal length of a plane mirror is infinity. The focal length of a spherical mirror is determined from the radius of curvature R as f = R/2. A plane mirror has an infinite radius of curvature, s... Read More »

## What is the focal length of a concave mirror?

## What is the focal length of a plane mirror that is 8 ft. tall?

The focal length of a plane (flat) mirror is infinity, because rays of light that are traveling parallel to one another will never converge after hitting a plane mirror. The focal length of a mirro... Read More »
