    1. This is not the homework forum.
    2. You did not show any work.
    Last time (t=12571, Jan. 13) you posted 5 questions verbatim from a textbook, without showing any of your own work. Stupidly, someone actually answered them. These forums are for learning/discussing. You learn nothing if someone just gives you answers.

    krab, I completely agree.

    To dragun (and everyone else seeking help): Please read Tom's sticky at the top of the Homework Help forums (where I will move this thread).

    Dragun, if you want homework help you have to show your work. Show us how you started and where you got stuck.

    ok heres what i think

    this is more of a s/a question so this is what i think ...

    corena=lens of camera
    retina=film of camera
    iris=diaphramg of camera
    lens= lens?
    i cant think of the eyeball one not sure if the lens one is right either

    No, the cornea is NOT the lens.

    According to "StLukeseye.com", "The cornea is the transparent, dome-shaped window covering the front of the eye."
