    The image is 12.8 cm far from the mirror.

    Explanation:

    Given:

    Height of the object=2.15 cm

    To Find:

    Distance between the image and mirror.

    Solution:

    Object distance u=-22.5 cm(object is always placed to the left of the mirror and distances to the left are indicated by negative sign)

    Focal length=+29.8 cm(concave mirror has a positive focal length)

    The image distance can be calculated using the mirror equation.

    1/f=1/v+1/u

    1/v= 1/f-1/u

    =1/29.8-1/-22.5\\\\1/v=1/29.8+1/22.5\\\\v=12.82 cm

    Thus we can conclude that the image is 12.82cm far from the mirror.
