A concave mirror is a spherical mirror in which the reflecting surface and the center of curvature fall on the same side of the mirror. In other words, if the mirror coating lies outside of the spherical surface, then it is known as a concave mirror.
A convex mirror is a spherical mirror in which the reflecting surface and the center of curvature lie on the opposite sides of the mirror. In other words, if the mirror coating lies in the inside of the spherical surface, then it is known as a convex mirror.

Image formed by concave mirror can be projected on a screen whereas convex mirror image cannot be projected on a screen.
Concave mirror can form real images as well as virtual but images by convex mirror are always virtual.
