Solution Summary

This solution explains the steps and solution for a thin-lens problem.

... d) Substituting u2 = - 80 cm and f = - 40 cm in the lens formula we get: 1/v2 - (- 1 ... The radii of curvature of the surfaces of a thin lens are +10cm and +30 cm. ...

... 1. Using the thin lens equation (1.1) Where f is the focal length, is the distance of the object from the lens and is the distance of the image from the lens. ...

... A thin lens produces a virtual image which is smaller than the object. ... Secondly, from the lens equation, we find the magnification of the lens: Where so and si ...
