A simple microscope is used by watch repairers. Give reason.

Solution

When an object is placed within the focal length of a simple microscope, its magnified and erect image is obtained on the same side of the lens as that of the object. So, a watch repairer sees the minute parts of a watch very clearly with a simple microscope by adjusting the distance between the object and the lens. This helps in repairing the watch. Hence, a simple microscope is used by watch repairers.

A 4 cm tall object is placed on the principal axis of a convex lens. The distance of the object from the optical centre of the lens is 12 cm and its sharp image is formed at a distance of 24 cm from it on a screen on the other side of the lens. If the object is now moved a little away from the lens, in which way (towards the lens or away from the lens) will he have to move the screen to get a sharp image of the object on it again? How will the magnification of the image be affected?
