Difference between the concave mirror and convex mirror

 Concave mirror Convex mirror Definition It is the section of a spherical mirror whose inner surface is polished to reflect light. It is a spherical mirror whose outer surface is polished to reflect light. Nature It is called a converging mirror because it converges parallel beam light. It is called a diverging mirror because it diverges a parallel beam of light. Focal length Its focal length is positive. Its focal length is negative. Nature of image In a concave mirror real as well as virtual images are formed. In the convex mirror, only virtual images are formed.
1. CONCAVE MIRROR

Definition

It is a spherical mirror whose reflecting surface is towards the Centre of the sphere whose part is it.

1. CONVEX MIRROR

Definition

It is a spherical mirror whose reflecting surface is on the Opposite side of the Centre of the sphere whose part is it.
