Problem 33.6: Focal length of convex mirror, point source

Please wait for the animation to completely load.

This animation has a point source, a beam source, and a mirror. You can also find an angle or create a line with an angle by moving the pink protractor and click-dragging to change the angle (position is given in meters and angle given in degrees). Restart. Which dot is sitting at the focal point of the mirror?
