Question

A man is walking under an inclined mirror at a constant velocity V ms–1along the X-axis. If the mirror is inclined at an angle θ with the horizontal, then what is the velocity of the image?

                                                        

Solution

Correct option is

 

Component of V perpendicular to the mirror gets reversed while that parallel to it remains same. Thus, velocity vector of image becomes

Q8

You are given two identical plano-convex lenses. When you place an object 20 cm to the left of a single plano-convex lens, the image appears 40 cm to the right of the lens. You then arrange the two plano-convex lenses back to back to form a double convex lens. If the object is 20 cm to the left of this new lens, what is the approximate location of the image?
