Mirrors are commonly used for personal grooming or admiring oneself in which case the looking glass is sometimes still used, decoration, and architecture. Mirrors are also used in scientific apparatus such
as telescopes
 and lasers, cameras, and industrial machinery etc..
A spherical mirror is a mirror which has the shape of a piece cut out of a spherical surface. There are two types of spherical mirrors: concave, and convex. These are illustrated . The most commonly occurring examples of concave mirrors are shaving mirrors and makeup mirrors. As is well-known, these types of mirrors magnify objects placed close to them. The most commonly occurring examples of convex mirrors are the passenger-side wing mirrors of cars. These type of mirrors have wider fields of view than equivalent flat mirrors, but objects which appear in them generally look smaller (and, therefore, farther away) than they actually are.
