How many foci does a lens have?

All optical elements have two foci. Following are a few important points to note about the foci:

  • For mirrors, the foci lie on the same spot, so it is only one focus.
  • For diverging/negative optical elements (concave lens/convex mirror), the foci lie in virtual space.
