Short Note

Write scientific reason.

A convex lens is called a converging lens.

Solution

  1. When light rays parallel to the principal axis are incident on a convex lens, they converge to a point on the principal axis.
  2. Due to its ability to collect rays together, a convex lens is called a converging lens.
