REFLECTION AT CURVED SURFACES & REFRACTION AT CURVED SURFACES:

1. Magnification : m = -v/u  or m=hi/ho

6. The relation between refractive indices of media, object distance, image distance, and radius of curvature is given by :

n2/v - n1/u = (n2-n1)/R
7. In case of plane mirrors, R, F are infinity, then the power is equal to zero.

8. The refractive index of prism is
n = sin{[A+D]/2}/SIN [A/2]

9. Speed of wave is , v = Frequency x wavelength

3. Resistance R = (Resistivity * length)/Area

4. Resistance R=V/I

5. Electric power P = V * I

6. P=V2/R

7. CONDUCTIVITY = 1/Resistivity

8. Resistors connected in series, R = R1 + R2 + R3 +.....
