2. Adelia holds a shiny steel spoon with its back (convex surface) facing her eyes at a distance

image is observed.

(b) Why is an upright image not seen on the front surface of the spoon at that distance?​

    Answer:

    (a) The convex mirror image, is always upright at all positions, while images formed by concave mirrors are always inverted when the object distance from the mirror is more than the mirrors focal length.

    (b) An upright image is not seen for object at a distance from a concave mirror further than the focal length of the mirror, which is the spoon in the question

    Therefore, the location of her eyes of approximately, 30 cm,  from the mirror is more than the mirror’s focal length
