TO DO:
you may find the efirst 2 links helpful as you work the problems.
Reading that describes concave mirror images on the diagram in your book on pg 460
• Here is a written review of drawing ray diagrams for concave mirrors as we did in the Zoom meeeting (see videos)

• Do the
Concave Mirror Interactive
Problems 1-4 pg 462 (for ray diagram in problem 2, I used mm instead of cm so the diagram fit on the page and still be proportionally correct.)
