We can solve this using the mirror equation or by just remembering that the image of an object placed in front of the focal point of a concave mirror is behind the mirror. The mirror equation
states that where , , and are positive if and only if the object, image, and focal point (respectively) are on the reflecting side of the mirror. In our case is positive and is positive and . Therefore, Therefore, the image is not on the reflecting side of the mirror. Therefore, answer (E) is correct. |
