Hello Everyone,
I have been working on a lens design that requires a concentric meniscus lens. Initially I was under the impression that r1 should equal r2 for the light to exit at infinity when entering at infinity.
However my ray diagram shows different, it shows the light is being bent...
Summary:: I cannot seem to get the answer to the following question.
For (a) I am using the formula 1/V= 1/U- 1/F, giving me 7.5cm. I am then adding this to 50cm to get 57.5cm. I then used -1/20-1/57.5-1/v to get **-14.9cm** which is Incorrect.
Any help greatly appreciated!!
Homework Statement:: Finding the distance between the back surface of the first lens and the front surface of the back lens.

I have two positive thin lenses that are separated by a distance of 5 cm. The focal lengths of the lenses are F_1 = 10 cm and...
I tried -M=pq = f/(f-p) = f/f - f/p = 1-(f/p)
=> M+1= -f/p
=> -Mp-p=f
But since it’s the y intercept, p will equal zero and so the focal length will be 0?

I want to make a laser to burn paper so if i use 2 or 3 convex lenses with a laser will it be helpful . Or can i use 1convex then 1 concave and then 1convex to make it
Homework Statement
In magnification, I keep on confusing the signs. From what I understand currently, magnification is positive when the image is erect. An image is only erect when it is a virtual image, therefore virtual images = positive magnification. Vice versa, magnification is negative...

I have a few fundamental questions in optics about the focus and blurry images.
Each text book says that according to this picture the object image is the same.

I was doing this experiment. Let's look at this image:
Suppose we get the imaginary object at dv by convergence lens. And this object is like a real object for the concave lens. Then how do we get a real object on the screen? It is known that only virtual objects can...
Hi everyone,
I am working on a project on my final project in Product design. The project is about translating digital concept into the analogue world. In my project I am especially interested in the digital “Windows” and am trying to apply the functions and possibilities of digital on to...
I'm trying to make a handmade telescope, but I'm stuck with the lenses I bought 2 lenses. they are the same
"convex from one side and concave from the other side" like glasses lenses.
then I knew that I need a double convex for both the object lens and the eyepiece lens.
so I decided to put the...

It sounds silly to ask such question or stumble in such problem, indeed!
But I was willing to make some small telescopes for young friends of mine, to encourage them to delve in the skies.
So, I bought:
1. Double concave, spherical glass lens, with a focal length of approx. -75mm and diameter...
