Focal length

notes

Refraction of parallel ray:

A parallel ray converges at focus of a convex lens and diverges from the focus of a concave lens.

Refraction of ray passing through the Principal focus:

A ray passing through principal focus emerges parallel to the principal axis after refraction from a convex lens.

A ray passing through the principal focus emerges parallel to the principal axis after diverging from a concave lens.

Ray passing through the optical centre of convex and concave lens emerges in same direction without any deviation.

Converging lens: A convex lens is known as converging lens because parallel rays converge at its focus.

Diverging lens: A concave lens is known as diverging lens because parallel rays appear to diverge from the focus; after refraction.
