An object of height 4 cm is placed at a distance of 20 cm from a concave lens of focal length 10 cm. Use lens formula to determine the position of the image formed.
Object distance, u = 20 cm
Image distance, v = ?
Focal length, f = 10 cm
As per the sign conventions used,
f = −10 cm
u = −20 cm
According to the lens formula,
The image is formed at a distance of 6.6 cm from the lens at the same side where the object is placed.
