Where must an object be placed to have a
magnification of 3.74 in front of a converging
lens of focal length 14.1 cm?

  • physics -

    Let do be the object distance and di be the image distance.
    di/do = 3.74, the magnification.

    1/do + 1/di = 1/do + 1/(3.74 do)
    = 4.74/(3.74 do)
    = 1.267/do = 1/14.1

    Solve for do.

    Three identical small Styrofoam balls of mass
    1.53 g are suspended from a fixed point by
    three nonconducting threads, each with a
    length of 56.4 cm and negligible mass. At
    equilibrium the three balls form an equilateral triangle with sides of 31 cm.
    What is the common charge carried by
    each ball? The acceleration of gravity is
    9.8 m/s
    and the value of Coulomb’s constant
    is 8.98755 × 10
    N · m2
