Woo, this is on my final exam and i dont know if theres a formula or something to solve it. really need help. anything is appreciated.

A converging lens with a focal length of 15.0 cm is placed 53 cm from a light bulb. Where would you place a screen to focus an image of the object? :uhh:

click the link below to see a drawing. do you recall how to apply the formula below from your textbook?

[tex] \frac{1}{p} \ + \ \frac{1}{q} \ = \ \frac{1}{f} [/tex]

In case those variables were confusing, I rewrote them.

[tex]\frac{1}{d_i} + \frac{1}{d_0} = \frac{1}{f}[/tex]

d_0 = object distance
d_i = image distance
f = focal length
