1. A myopic person wears eyeglasses with a lens strength of - 3.5 diopters. Where is the far point for that person's eyes?

a. 3.5 m

b. 25 cm

c. 28.6 cm

d. infinity

Answer: c. 28.6 cm

lens power (in diopters) = 1 / focal length (in meters)

lens power (in diopters) = -3.5

therefore focal length= -0.286 m= -28.6 cm

2. Red light of wavelength 632.8 nm is incident on a pair of slits whose separation is 0.75mm. What is the separation of neighboring interference maxima on a screen 360cm ...
