If two mirrors are kept at ${60^ \circ }$ to each other, then the number of images formed by them is
A
$5$
B
$6$
C
$7$
D
$8$

Explanation

KEY CONCEPT : When two plane mirrors are inclined a each other at an angle $\theta$ then the number of the images of a point object placed between the plane mirrors is

${{{{360}^ \circ }} \over \theta } - 1,\,\,if{{{{360}^ \circ }} \over \theta }$ is even

$\therefore$ Number of images formed

$= {{{{360}^ \circ }} \over {{{60}^ \circ }}} - 1 = 5$

An astronomical telescope has a large aperture to
A
reduce spherical aberration
B
have high resolution
C
increase span of observation
D
have low dispersion

Explanation

KEY CONCEPT : The resolving power of a telescope

$R.P = {D \over {122\lambda }}$ where $D=$ diameter of the objective lens

$\lambda =$ wavelength of light.

Clearly, larger the aperture, larger is the value of $D,$

more is the resolving power or resolution.
