Exercise 5 (D) | Q 6 | Page 131

Describe in brief how would you determine the approximate focal length of a convex lens.

Exercise 5 (D) | Q 7 | Page 131

The following  diagram shows the experimental set up for the determination of focal length of a lens using a plane mirror.

(i) draw two rays from the point O of the object to show the formation of image I at O itself.
(ii) What is the size of the image I?
(iii)State two more characteristics of the image I.
(iv) Name the distance of the objects O from the optical centre of the lens.
(v) To what point will the rays return if the mirror is moved away from the lens by a distance equal to the focal length of the lens ?

Exercise 5 (D) | Q 8 | Page 132

Describe how you would determine the focal length of a converging lens, using plane mirror and one pin. Draw a ray diagram to illustrate your answer.
