Question

A convex lens of power 5D is placed at a distance of 30 cm from a screen. At what distance from the lens should the screen be placed so that its image is formed on the screen?  [3 MARKS]
 


Solution

Problem: 3 Marks

1. Given:
Power of the lens, P=+5D

Focal length, f = 15=0.2m=20cm

2. Here, the screen is placed 30 cm from the lens.

                v=+30cm,f=+20cm,u=?

3. Using the lens formula, 1v1u=1f

1301u=120

130120=1u

2030600=1u

10600=1u

 we get u=60cm

 Therefore, the screen should be placed at 60 cm from the lens.
