What is the magnification of the image of the apple?
Wwhich of the following statements are true and which are false?
The image of the apple is:
behind the lens?
virtual?
inverted?
unchanged in size?

    Learn to use the lens (and mirror) equation:

    1/Do + 1/Di = 1/f

    The object distance is Do = 17.0 cm in your case.

    The focal length is 23.2 cm in this case.

    Solve for image distance Di

    The magnification is |Di/Do|
    (note absolute value signs|.

    Di will be negative in this case. That means the image is virtual, and not inverted.
