1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Why does a camera get wider/longer? 2. Relevant equations N/A 3. The attempt at a solution Well, I assume that it is to produce the largest image that can possibly be on the film. But I'm a little confused on the question as a whole? Am I on the right track and what can I add on to what I think thus far? Thanks in advance for your help! It is totally appreciated!
