What kind of mirror – concave, convex or plain – would be best suited for use in a solar cooker? Why?

 

Answer

A concave mirror would be best suited for use in a solar cooker.

This is because when a concave mirror reflector is attached to a solar cooker, it converges a large amount of sun’s heat rays at its focus due to which a high temperature is produced in the focus area.
