A concave mirror curves or bends inwards and makes an object look bigger and nearer than it actually is. It works by making light rays seem to come from a point in front of the mirror, which is closer to our eyes. Therefore if a person stands in front of a concave mirror then he will definitely find that his image is larger than himself. Concave mirrors are important in such things as bicycle reflectors and reflecting telescopes.
