One image should be formed by rays that go directly through the bubble and another image is formed by reflected light that hits the bubble.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

n_{1}= 1

n_{2}= 1.5

R = -7.5 CM

s_{o}= 5 cm

If n_{1}= n_{2}, then s_{i}would equal 15 cm as measured from the second vertex on the concave surface. However, they're not equal and the light ray is refracted at the plane. Since n_{1}is less than n_{2}, the light ray will be refracted away from the perpendicular line. Thus, s_{i}^{'}is less than 15 cm.

How do I find an exact value for this second image? I assume the first image is also along the optical axis, but where?
