Compute the focal length in air of a thin biconvex lens (n=1.5) having radii of 20 and 40 cm. Locate and describe the image of an object 40cm from the lens.
my answer:
1/f = (n-1)(1/R1-1/R2)
1/f = (1.5-1)(1/20-1/40)
1/f = .5(.025)
f = 1/.0125 = 80cm (convering lens because f is positive)
Mt=-f/x0=-80/40=-2cm (Inverted image because Mt is negative)
Did I use the correct equations?
