# An Illuminated Object is Placed on the Principal Axis of a Converging Lens So that a Real Image is Formed on the Other Side of the Lens. If the Object is Shifted a Little, - Physics

MCQ

An illuminated object is placed on the principal axis of a converging lens so that a real image is formed on the other side of the lens. If the object is shifted a little,

#### Options

• the image will be shifted simultaneously with the object

• the image will be shifted a little later than the object

• the image will be shifted a little earlier than the object

•  the image will not shift

#### Solution

the image will be shifted a little later than the object

Light rays emitting from a source have to cover some optical distance to form an image of the source on the other side of the lens. So, when a light source is shifted by some distance on the principal axis, then the light rays emitting from the new position of the source take some time to form a shifted image of the object on the other side of the lens. However, this delay is very small because the speed of light has a very larger value.
