    Re: Optic

    No need to delete, just please describe what you are aking in a bit more detail. Is this a question, and you are given the answer and asked to show the calculations? Is 5/3 supposed to be the answer? Can you describe how you should approach this problem, and list what the Relevant Equations are?
