To reduce the possibility of spherical aberrations, that is, blurred images formed by rays not reflecting to a precise point, these concave mirrors are being represented by vertical lines.

Case I: the object is located infinitely far away
Case II: the object is located in Region I

When these diagrams are finished, do not forget that each student is to individually submit their own online lab form. On the form, you are to ONLY input your numerical values - the correct units have already been supplied. Make sure that your teacher or his/her designee signs off the Teacher Certification area (signifying that your diagrams have been visually checked for correctness) before posting your submission.
