A near-sighted person might correct his vision by wearing diverging lenses with focal length f = 60 cm. When wearing his glasses, he looks not at actual objects but at the virtual images of those objects formed by his glasses. Suppose he looks at a 10-cm-long pencil held vertically 1.5 m from his glasses. WHAT IS THE HEIGHT?

  • physics - ,

    1/do +1/di =1/f
    f= - 0.6 m (for diverging lens), do= 1.5 m
    1/di=-1/do+1/f=-(1/1.5+1/0.6)=2.33
    di= - 0.43 m (‘-‘ as the image is in front of the lens)
    Magnification M= - di/do=0.43/1.5=0.287
    h=M•H=0.287•10=2.87 cm
