Abstract

I had need of an hour-long experiment illustrating the properties and use of cylindrical concave mirrors for my nonscience majors, and put together an exercise using off-the-shelf ideas and equipment. There is clearly nothing new here, but other teachers may find some combination of the ideas useful.
