Problem: A lens creates an image as shown. In this situation, the object distance s isa) Larger than the focal length f. ?b) Smaller than focal length f. ?c) Equal to the focal length f. ?

FREE Expert Solution

The lens maker equation:

1so+1si=1f

Considering distances on the lens to be negative:

so = - so and si = si

1/f =1/si - 1/so
