    Lez prob


    An object is moving with velocity 0.01 m/s towards a convex lens of focal length 0.3m. Find the magnitude of rate of
    separation of image from the lens when the object is at a distance of 0.4 m from the lens. Also calculate the magnitude of
    the rate of change of the lateral magnification

    Guys plz help :surprised

    Start by finding the relationship between image distance and object distance for a convex lens. (Assume it's a thin lens.)
