There are three principal rays that can be used for visualization of image location and size. These rays, for this particular curved mirror, are:
Now draw the reflected segments of the three special rays considered previously. Use the label Ray1 for the reflected segment of Ray 1, Ray2 for the reflected segment of Ray 2, and so forth. Make certain to extend the reflected rays until they converge. Draw the vectors for the reflected rays starting from the point where the incident rays hit the plane of the concave mirror. The location and orientation of the vectors will be graded
