(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

I need to find the relationship between object-lens distance and image-lens distance for a lense(converging) but cannot graph the relationship in a way that the focal lenght is the slope for the graph

2. Relevant equations

1/u + 1/v = 1/f

where u= object lense distance and v= image lense distance and f= focal lenght

y=mx+b --> I would like m=focal lenght and b=0

3. The attempt at a solution

so far, I can only come up with:

-u ( 1/[uv]) = -1/v

thus ( 1/[uv]) is the slope.. but f= (v+u)/(uv)
