Instructions for the Image Position and Magnification in Curved Mirrors and Lenses Calculator

When using the calculator, you must consider the sign rules written below:

  1. The object's position do is always taken as positive.
  2. In concave mirrors and converging lenses, the focal length F is taken as positive while in convex mirrors and diverging lenses it is taken as negative.
  3. If the image is real, its position di is taken as positive, while if the image is virtual its distance di is taken as negative.

Position of the image Formula and Calculation

di = do × F/do-F

The formula above is obtained by rearranging the mirrors (lenses) equation:

1/do + 1/di = 1/F

Magnification produced by a curved mirror or a lens Formula and Calculation

M = F/do - F

The formula above is obtained by the combination of the two other formulae:

Formula 1

M = di/do

Formula 1

di = do × F/do - F

Height of the image produced by a curved mirror or lens Formula and Calculation

hi = ho × (F/do - F)

The formula above is obtained by the combination of the two other formulae:

Formula 1

M = hi/ho

Formula 1

M = F/do - F
