Chapter 10 Class 10 - Light - Reflection and Refraction (Term 1)

Assertion (A): The focal length of the convex  mirror will increase, if the mirror is placed in  water.  

Reason (R): The focal length of a convex mirror of  radius R is equal to, f =  R/2  .  



  • Focal length of the spherical mirror  does not depend on the medium in which it is  placed. 
    Thus, focal length of convex mirror will remain the same.

  • For spherical mirrors, Focal length = (Radius of Curvature/2) 





  • Assertion is false
  • Reasoning is true


So, the correct answer is (d)
