Homework Help: Magnifying glass image angle

  1. Mar 28, 2010 #1
    I have been given a statement and have to decide if it is true or false and then justify my answer.
    I have already established that this statement is false by the fact that a magnifying glass
    creates a 'virtual image' not a 'real' one but i am having trouble working out what else is false about it.

    ok here's the statement;

    In the normal use of the magnify, the object is placed within the observer's near point distance and a real image is produced between the observers near point and infinity. This image subtends a greater angle at the observers eye than does the object in its position between the near point and the eye.

    any help would be much appreciated
