Spherical Mirror Model 

written by Andrew Duffy

The Spherical Mirror Model demonstrates the focusing of light using a spherical mirror. The user can change the size and position of the object, the focal length of the mirror and the rays shown in the diagram.

The Spherical Mirror Model was created using the Easy Java Simulations (EJS) modeling tool.  It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive.  Double clicking the ejs_bu_Spherical_Mirror.jar file will run the program if Java is installed.
