Answer

Uses of a concave mirror are as follows —

  1. As a shaving mirror — When a concave mirror is held near the face (such that the face is between pole and focus of the mirror), it gives an upright and magnified image. Hence even tiny hair can be seen.
  2. As a reflector — In torch, searchlight and head light of automobiles, cycles etc., a concave polished metallic surface is used to obtain a parallel beam of light.
