Draw a ray diagram to show the path of the refracted ray in each of the following cases:-
A ray of light incident on a concave lens is
(i) passing through its optical centre.
(ii) parallel to its principal axis.
(iii) directed towards its principal focus.
(i) A ray of light passing through the optical centre of the concave lens will emerge without any deviation.
(ii) A ray of light parallel to the principal axis, after refraction from a concave lens, appears to diverge from the principal focus on the same side of the lens.
(iii) A ray of light directed towards the principal focus of a concave lens, becomes parallel to its principal axis after refraction through the lens.
