A piece of glas has an index of refraction of 1.5. The ends are hemispheres with radii 2 cm and 4 cm, and the distance that seperates the centers of the hemispherical ends. A point object is located in air 1 cm from the left end of the glass. Find the location of the image of the object due to refraction at the two spherical surfaces.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So on the left end the mirror has a radius of 2 cm, and on the right it is of 4 cm and the two are seperated by 8 cm.

Im thinking of using the equation: n2-n1/R = n1/d0 + n2/di. If so I will have to use it twice, one for each radius, which would give me two different di, then average them. Thats my thinking at least, not sure if its correct
