Write the formula for a lens connecting image distance (v), object distance (u) and the focal length (f). How does the lens formula differ from the mirror formula?
Lens formula is:
Now, the mirror formula is given by:
In both the formulas,
u = Object distance
v = Image distance
f = Focal length
In mirror formula, positive sign is present between the reciprocals of image distance and object distance .
In lens formula, negative sign is present between the reciprocals of image distance and object distance.
