    Does anybody know where to get "Converging lens"?

    Hi,
    I work on an independent study course for physics and it requires converging lens
    in order to begin the experiment.

    I thought of going to a local optical stores and asking them for purchase
    but I don't think the Business Depot guys would sell them.. (Yes I live in Canada lol)

    does anybody know where I could get them?

    Thank you for viewing this post.

    Shame on you! But getting your hands on a magnifying glass shouldn't be too hard. (And it might come in handy!)

    Also, if you wear glasses take a look at them. If you're farsighted, you might get lucky.

    A lens from reading glasses would also work.
