Homework Help: Optics Thick lenses

  1. Mar 29, 2006 #1
    What is axial thickness? Is it the thickness between the two principle planes of a lens or is it just the thickness of the lens? I need the correct defintion to finish a problem.

    I believe that the axial thickness of a lens is just the center thickness of the lens.
