Question

# In the given figure a plano-concave lens is placed on a paper on which flower is drawn. How far above its actual position does the flower appear to be ?

A
10 cm
B
15 cm
C
50 cm
D
none of these

Solution

## The correct option is A 10 cmGiven: In the given figure a plano-concave lens is placed on a paper on which flower is drawn. To find how far above its actual position does the flower appearSolution:Refraction aoccur at the surface, and according to the given criteria, object distance, $$u=-20cm$$refractive index, $$\mu_1=\dfrac 32, \mu_2=1$$And radius of curvature, $$R=+20cm$$Applying the lens formula, we get$$\dfrac {\mu_2}v-\dfrac {\mu_1}u=\dfrac {\mu_2-\mu_1}R\\\implies \dfrac 1v-\dfrac {\dfrac 32}{(-20)}=\dfrac {1-\dfrac 32}{20}\\\implies \dfrac 1v=\dfrac {3}{-40}+\dfrac {2-3}{40}\\\implies \dfrac 1v=\dfrac {-3-1}{40}\\\implies v=-10cm$$Hence the flower will appear 10 cm above its actual position of flower.Physics
