HC Verma Solutions Vol 1 Chapter 18 Geometrical Optics

HC Verma Solutions Vol 1 Chapter 18 Geometrical Optics provides a thorough and contemporary approach to understand questions related to the mirror equation, finding the focal length and magnification, etc. The solutions contain accurate answers that describe all the major questions which are discussed in class 11 HC Verma book and questions that are often seen in competitive examinations like IIT JEE. Students will learn the right method to solve problems from the chapter like;

  • Questions on finding the focal length and the image distance formed from the mirror along with the image’s nature.
  • Problems on celestial objects with their diameter given and find out where the image will be formed.
  • Questions on the real and apparent depth as well as concepts of light travelling in a glass slab and the shifting due to the glass slab.
  • Questions related to finding the shift when the refractive index of multiple slabs is given and position of the image.
  • Some of the other questions are based on finding the critical angle of glass when total internal reflection is given as well as finding the angle of deviation when the angle of incidence and refraction are given.

The HC Verma solutions are a great tool that will help students to not only find the right answers but also understand the concept more clearly. Study more effectively and stay ahead in the competition by referring to the solutions provided here.

Important Questions For Chapter 18

1. Do you think that a camera can be used to photograph a virtual image?

2. What happens to the focal length of a spherical mirror or a thin lens when they are dipped in water? What changes do you notice?

3. A light source is kept at a distance of 2 f from a converging lens having a focal length 1. Where will the intensity of light on the other side of the lens be maximum at?

(a) 2 f (b) f (c) between f and 2 f (d) greater than 2 f

4. Taking symmetric double convex lens we cut it in two equal parts with a plane that is perpendicular to the principal axis. The original lens had a power of 4 D. What will the power of a cutlens be?

(a) 5 D (b) 4 D (c) 3 D (d) 2 D.

5. What is the main condition for an image to be erect when it is placed perpendicular to the principal axis of a mirror?

(a) When the object and the image are both real
(b) If the object and the image are both virtual
(c) The object is real but the image is virtual
(d) Or when the object is virtual but the image is real
