ConceptRefraction of Light - Image Formation by Lenses - Convex Lens

#### Question

A student focuses the image of a well-illuminated distant object on a screen using a convex lens. After that, he gradually moves the object towards the lens and each time focuses its image on the screen by adjusting the lens.

(i) In which direction, towards the screen or away from the screen, does he move the lens?

(ii) What happens to the size of the image? Does it decrease or increase?

(iii) What happens to the image on the screen when he moves the object very close to the lens?

A student wants to project the image of a candle flame on the walls of school laboratory by using a lens:-

(a) Which type of lens should be use and why?

(b) At what distance in terms of focal length 'F' of the lens should be place the candle flame so as to get (i) a magnified, and (ii) a diminished image respectively on the wall?

(c) Draw ray diagram to show the formation of the image in each case?

To determine the approximate focal length of the given convex lens by focussing a distant object (say, a sign board), you try to focus the image of the object on a screen. The image you obtain on the screen is always

(a) erect and laterally inverted

(b) erect and diminished

(c) inverted and diminished

(d) virtual, inverted and diminished

To find the image-distance for varying object-distances in case of a convex lens, a student obtains on a screen a sharp image of a bright object placed very far from the lens. After that he gradually moves the object towards the lens and each time focuses its image of the screen.

(a) In which direction – towards or away from the lens, does he move the screen to focus the object?

(b) What happens to the size of image – does it increase or decrease?

(c) What happen when he moves the object very close to the lens?
