Question

# If an object is placed at a distance of 30 cm and the image is formed at a distance of 10 cm on the same side of the lens, then find the focal length of the lens used.10 cm15 cm20 cm25 cm

Solution

## The correct option is B 15 cmGiven: Image distance, v=−10 cm Object distance, u=−30 cm [Using the sign conventions, as both object and image are on the left side of the lens] Let focal length be f. Using the lens formula: 1v−1u=1f 1−10−1−30=1f f=−15 cm Here negative sign shows that the lens is concave.
