Solution - Magnifying Power of a Simple Microscope is Inversely Proportional to the Focal Length of the Lens. What Then Stops Us from Using a Convex Lens of Smaller and Smaller Focal Length and Achieving Greater and Greater Magnifying Power? - CBSE (Science) Class 12 - Physics

Question

Magnifying power of a simple microscope is inversely proportional to the focal length of the lens. What then stops us from using a convex lens of smaller and smaller focal length and achieving greater and greater magnifying power?

Solution

The focal length of a convex lens cannot be decreased by a greater amount. This is because making lenses having very small focal lengths is not easy. Spherical and chromatic aberrations are produced by a convex lens having a very small focal length.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
