Optics and Convex Lens

equiconvex lens (made from a glass of known refractive index) and an adjustable object needle. Apparatus: A convex lens, an optical needle, a plane mirror, a clamp stand, a spherometer, a plumb line, metre scale, water and turpentine oil. Theory: Let’s add small amount of water on a flat, plane surface and place a convex lens over it. This forms a plano-concave lens of water between the lower surface of convex lens and plane mirror. Let f1 and f2 are the focal lengths of water lens and convex...

Refraction through a Lens

REFRACTION THROUGH A LENS Lens: Lens is a transparent refracting medium bounded by two curved surface which are generally spherical. Types of lens: Generally there are two types of lens: 1. Convex lens: It is a lens which is thicker at the middle and thinner at the edges. It is also called converging lens as the light rays converges on passing through it at a point. Focal length of convex lens is taken as positive. 2. Concave lens: it is a lens which is thicker at the edges and thinner at the middle...

mechanism of vision

Vision The eye works on the same principle as that of the camera. The light rays from the object pass through the conjuctiva, cornea, aqueous humour, lens and vitreous humour in that order. All these structures refract the light such that it falls on the retina. This is called focussing. Maximum focussing is done by the cornea and the lens. The light then falls on the retina. This light is received by the photoreceptors - rods and cones, on the retina. The absorbed light activates the pigments...

all interdependent and interrelated with each other. The telescope must perform all three functions at once at once for it to work. Light gathering: Light gathering power is a measure of how much light the objective (primary mirror in a reflector, lens in a refractor) can collect from distant objects.  Nominally, it is proportional to the square of the diameter of the aperture.  Doubling the aperture results in gathering four times as much light. Resolving: Resolving power is a measure of the amount...

Refraction in Biconcave Lens Now let's investigate the refraction of light by double concave lens. Suppose that several rays of light approach the lens; and suppose that these rays of light are travelling parallel to the principal axis. Upon reaching the front face of the lens, each ray of light will refract towards the normal to the surface. At this boundary, the light ray is passing from air into a more dense medium (usually plastic or glass). Since the light ray is passing from a medium in...

eld Introduc on Some objects are far too small to be seen with the human eye. However, by using a microscope many can be viewed in great detail. There are many types of microscopes that range from low–level magni ca on (i.e., hand held magni ca on lens) to very high power magni ca on (i.e., an electron micro scope). In the middle of that range lies the light microscope, or for our purposes, the compound light microscope, which uses mul ple lenses. The compound light microscope (Figure 1) has two...

resulting in an image that your naked eye would ordinarily see if looking at the slide. The image is then magnified by the lower (objective) lens. The objective lens flips the image and magnifies it by bending the light. The light is bent as it passes through the convex surface on either side of the lens material. The eyepiece acts as a weaker version of the objective lens by flipping the image again and magnifying it further. Compound microscopes are used most commonly to...
