A 1.2 cm long pin is placed perpendicular to the principal axis of a convex mirror of focal length 12cm, at a distance of 8cm apart from it.

a) Find the location of image.

b) Find the height of image.

c) Is the image erect or not?

Use mirror formula. \(\dfrac{1}{v}+\dfrac{1}{u}=\dfrac{1}{f}\) where \(u,v,f\) stand for object distance, image distance and focal length respectively. Use Cartesian convention to aid with the signs. For convex mirror, find out which is positive and which is not. Then its easy
