Question

 Explain with the help of a diagram, why the convex lens is also called a converging lens.

Solution

A convex lense is outwardly curved and causes the light to pass through it and converge or concentrate to a point. Think of a magnifying glass that is used to burn something. The light that passes through it concentrates to a point, and this convergence is used to burn things. See the diagram given below.
