1.what focal length can be assigned to a plane mirror??

2.which spherical mirror is know as diverging mirror??
3.whats the difference between a focus and principal focus??


1. Focal length of the mirror is zero. Because f = radius of curvature(r) / 2
     As r is 0 so f = 0/2 = 0
     By defination the focal length of plane mirror is infinity.

2. Convex mirror as it does not allow to meet the ray of light at a point.

3. As per as my view, both are same.

And sorry for delay in answering.......!
