The different types of Mirror used in cars are 

  • Convex mirror

    The side mirrors of the car and the rear view mirror of a car are made up of convex mirrors.

    This is because the image formed by a convex mirror is diminished and erect image, thus it provides a larger field of view.

    A larger field of view helps the driver to know better about the traffic behind. 


  • Concave mirror

    We use Concave mirror in the headlight of a car.

    When the bulb of the headlight is placed at the focus of the mirror, 

    then the concave mirror produces a powerful beam of parallel light rays, 

    This beam of light helps us to see things at a distance
