Activities and uses

Show the properties of concave mirror so everyone can see. A sample activity from the datasheet is given below.

Place an object upside down at a point just beyond the focal point. An image will be perceived to be in front of the mirror. Place a screen with a platform at the point where the image appears. The image can only be seen by viewing along the principal axis and it will appear as though the doll is standing on the platform. Viewing away from the principal axis will reveal only a platform. An excellent demonstration and ideal for creating classroom discussion.

Please note: The focal length on the Mega Mirrors is too short for Schlieren photography.

Products being sold are not toys. They are for Educational / Laboratory use only. They are not for use by children 12 and under.
