Question 2 Page 184
A convex lens forms a real and inverted image of a needle at a distance of 50 cm from it. Where is the needle placed in front of the convex lens if the image is equal to the size of the object ? Also, find the power of the lens
Given that
Image formed is real and of same size,
Hence, Magnification = −1
Since Image formed is real,
∴ Image distance is positive
Image distance = v = + 50 cm
Let the object distance = u
We know that,
Magnification in a lens = 𝑣/𝑢
−1 = 50/𝑢
∴ u = 50/(−1)
u = − 50 cm
∴ Needle is placed 50 cm infront of the lens
Now,
In a convex lens
Size of image is same as the size of object
∴ Object must be placed at Twice the Focal Length
Thus,
Object distance = 2 × Focal length
50 = 2 × Focal length
Now,
In a convex lens
Size of image is same as the size of object
∴ Object must be placed at Twice the Focal Length
Thus,
Object distance = 2 × Focal length
50 = 2 × Focal length
Focal length = 50/2
Focal length = 25 cm
Focal length = (25 )/100 m
Focal length = 0.25 m
Now,
Power of a lens = 1/(𝐹𝑜𝑐𝑎𝑙 𝐿𝑒𝑛𝑔𝑡ℎ)
= 1/0.25
= 100/25
= 4 D
∴ Power of the lens is 4 D
