1. A eyeglass lens has strength of +5.50 diopters. What is the focal length of the lens?
2. A farsighted eye has a near point of 150 cm. Objects closer than 150 cm are not seen clearly. A converging lens is used to permit clear vision of a book placed 25 cm in front of the eye. Find the focal length of the lens and express its strength in diopters?
3. A myopic person wears eyeglasses with a lens strength of -2.5 diopters. Where is the far point for that person's eyes?
4. The prescription for a student's eyeglasses is changed from 0.25 diopters to 1.25 diopters. By what distance had the student's near point shifted?
5. A 8X magnifying glass is placed 4.0 cm away from a postage stamp. (a) Where is the image of the stamp? (b) Is it real or virtual?
6. You are taking photos with a shutter speed of 1/500 s and a lens aperture of f/1.4. If you then set the lens to f/2.8, what should be the shutter speed to give the same exposure to the film?
7. The lens of a projection TV system has a maximum aperture of 5.8cm and is rated f/4.3. In operation, the lens of the image is 150 cm. What is the approximate diagonal size of the object element in the projection system? Note: The image is formed at 450 cm from the lens.
8. A 17.9-cm focal-length lens is used to project 35-mm slides onto a screen 4.27 m from the projector lens. What must be the size of the screen if the image of the slide is to just fill the screen? The dimensions of the image on the slide are 23.5 mm X 34.3 mm.
9. An eyepiece of 2.5-cm focal length and an objective of 0.32-cm focal length are used in a standard microscope. (a) What power should be marked on each element? (b) What is the overall magnification of the combination? Assume L is 16 cm.

1.)
Power = +5.50 diopters
Focal length f = 1/5.5 m = 100/5.5 cm = 18.18 cm --Answer

2.)
image v = -150 cm
object u = -25 cm
focal length f = ?
1/f = 1/v - 1/u
=> 1/f = (-1/150) - (-1/25) = (-1 + 6)/150
=> f = 150/5 = 30 cm --Answer

3.)
Power of the specs glasses P = -2.5 diopters
Therefore,
focal length f = -1/2.5 m = -100/2.5 = -40 cm --Answer
-ve means concave lens of focal length 40 cm.

"With unaided vision, a librarian can focus only on objects that lie at distances between 6.0 m and 0.37 m. Find the refractive power needed for each part of the bifocal eyeglass lenses (1. for the converging lens and 2. for the diverging lens) that wi

A student is reading a lecture written on a blackboard. The lenses in her eyes have refractive power of 57.50 diopters, and the lens-to-retina distance 1.750 cm. (a) How far (in meters) is the blackboard from her eyes? (b) If the writing on the blackboard is 5.00 cm high, what is the size of the image on her retina?

An object is initially placed on the optical axis 26.5 cm to the left of a convex lens that has a focal length of 13.2 cm. The image is real and inverted. If the object is moved toward the lens to a point 7.1 cm away, what is the position of the image?

A dedicated sports-car enthusiast polishes the inside and outside surfaces of a hubcap that is a section of a sphere. When she looks into one side of the hubcap, she sees an image of her face 30 cm in back of the hubcap. She then flips the hubcap over and sees another image of her face 10 cm in back of the hubcap. How far is

(d) a virtual object a the right of the second focal point.

Joy Becket is the director of Eyeglasses for the Poor (EP). EP receives donations of eyeglassesand recycles them for use by the nearsighted needy around the world. Sometimes the eyeglass frames are expensive designer frames that can be sold to raise operating funds for the organization. Joy is concerned that EP's resources are
