Spherical Mirror: Concave, Plane and Convex
If |h/R| < 0.2, we can use the Thin Lens Equation with f = R/2:

View the image (I) of an object (O) is responding to the changes of its distance (o) to the Mirror, its height (h) and the type of Mirror (f > 0 for concave, f = infinity for plane and f < 0 convex).

Note: To see these simulations using Swing/Java2D, you must use a PC and install:
JRE (or JVM plug-in) 1.4.0 or up from Oracle
