### Class 10 Physics Assignment for Light

Question : In the set-up shown below, a clear image of a distant object is obtained on the screen. The focal length of the concave mirror is:
a. 9.4 cm
b. 9.9 cm
c. 9.8 cm
d. 11.4 cm
Explanation: f = 11.8 - 2 = 9.8 cm

Question :  How does the frequency of a beam of ultra-violet light change when it goes from air into glass?
a. None of these
b. Frequency decreases
c. Remains the same
d. Frequency increases
Explanation: The frequency of light depends on the source of light and remains the same during refraction. The speed of the light changes when a ray of light passes from one medium to another. The speed of light is higher in a rarer medium than a denser medium. A ray of light travelling from a rarer medium to a denser medium slows down, due to which there is a change in the wave-length.

Question : What is the radius of curvature of the spherical mirror in the figure given, if PA = 10 cm?
Answer :  We know that radius of curvature is twice the focal length f, so
R = 2f = 2(PA) = 2(10) = 20 cm

Question : Can a plane mirror be called a spherical mirror?
Answer :  Yes, a plane mirror can be called a spherical mirror because it also obeys the laws of reflection just like the spherical mirror . The only difference is that the reflecting surface of spherical mirror is curved while that of plane mirror is straight having infinite focal length and infinite centre of curvature. It can be called a spherical mirror of radius of curvature equal to infinity.

Question : Distinguish between real and virtual image in a lens.

Question : If p, q and r denote the object distance, image distance and the radius of curvature respectively, of a spherical mirror, then find out the relation between them.
Answer :  From mirror formula, we have
1/f = 1/v + 1/u
Substitute the given values, we get

which is the required relation between the three variables.

Question : An object 2 cm high is placed at a distance of 16 cm from a concave mirror which produces a real image 3 cm high.
1. Find the position of the image.
2. What is the focal length of mirror?
Object height, h= +2 cm
Image height, h' = - 3 cm (real image hence inverted)
Object distance, u = -16 cm
Image distance, v -?
Focal length, f=?
(i) Position of image
From the expression for magnification
m = h'/h = v/u
We have, v = -u h'/h
Putting values, we get v = -(-16 ) X -3/2
v = -24 cm
The image is formed at distance of 24 cm in front of the mirror (negative sign means object and image are on the same side).
(ii) Focal length of mirror
Using mirror formula, Putting values, we get
Using mirror formula,
