Question

Consider how a converging lens produces a virtual image opposed to a real image.

a. Would the virtual image be upright or inverted? Is it larger or smaller than the object itself?

b. Can you observe this image on a screen placed in front of the lens? Explain

c. Suppose you move the object closer to the lens. Is the image upright or inverted? Is it larger or smaller than the object itself?

d. If the object is closer to a converging lens than the focal point, is it possible for the image to be smaller than the object?

e. What simple optical device uses a converging lens in this way?

Answer #1

a) For a converging lens, the virtual images will be upright and larger than the object

---------------

b) As light rays from virtual image do not converge , therefore, a virtual image cannot be projected on a screen.

---------------

c) as we move the object closer to the lens, the image size keeps decreasing but image always stays upright,

--------------

d) If the object is closer to a converging lens than the focal point, it is not possible for the image to be smaller than the object

---------------

e) A magnifier can be seen as a device which makes use of this phenomena

True or False
a) A converging lens can produce a virtual, upright, enlarged
image.
b) A diverging lens always produces a virtual, upright, reduced
image.
c) For a converging lens an object has to be placed between the
focal point and the lens in order to form a virtual image.
d) A converging lens can never produce a virtual, upright,
reduced image. A converging lens cannot produce a real, inverted
reduced image.
e) A diverging lens can produce a real,...

A converging lens with a focal length of +30 cm is placed 40 cm
to the left of a diverging lens with a focal length of -40 cm. An
object is placed 60 cm to the left of the converging lens. What is
the location and orientation of the image produced by the
combination of lenses?
Why is the answer B?
(a) Upright, on the right of the diverging lens and larger than
the main object
(b) Inverted, on the...

Starting with a real object, answer the following

upright, enlarged image.
b) A diverging lens can produce a real, inverted,
reduced image.
c) For a converging lens an object has to be placed
between the focal point and the lens in order to form a virtual
image.
d) A converging lens can never produce a virtual,
upright, reduced image.
e) A converging lens cannot produce...

Consider a converging lens whose focal length is 5.47 cm. An
object is placed on the axis of the lens at a distance of 11.7 cm
from the lens.
1. How far is the object's image from the lens? In
centimeters.
2. If it can be determined, is the image real or virtual?
virtual
real
cannot be determined
3. If it can be determined, is the image upright or inverted
with respect to the object?
inverted
upright
cannot be determined

A diverging lens with a focal length of -19.7 cm and a
converging lens with a focal length of 11.0 cm have a
common central axis. Their separation is 39.5 cm. An
object of height 1.1 cm is 26.4 cm in front of
the diverging lens, on the common central axis. Find the location
of the final image produced by the combination of the two
lenses.
Where is the image located as measured from the converging
lens?
What is the...

Converging lens 1, of focal length 7.5cm, is placed 10cm in
front of converging lens 2, of focal length 20cm. If the final
image is 10cm behind lens 2, which statement is true?
A) the object is 5cm in front of lens 1
B) the image is a virtual image
C) the image is upright compared to the image
D) the image is 1.5x bigger than the object
the correct answer is D, but can someone please help me get...

Two lenses are placed 50 cm apart. The first lens is converging
and has a focal length of 20 cm, and the second lens is diverging
and has a focal length of 15 cm. If an object is placed 55 cm in
front of the first lens, where is the final image located? Give
your answer in relation to the second lens. What is the overall
magnification? Is the final image upright or inverted? Is the final
image real or...

A converging lens with a focal length of 12.0cmforms a virtual
image 8.00mm tall, 17.0cm to the right of the lens.
Part A
Determine the position of the object.
s =
cm
Part B
Determine the size of the object.
|y| =
cm
Part C
Is the image erect or inverted?
Is the image erect or inverted?
The image is erect.
The image is inverted.
Part D
Are the object and image on the same side or opposite sides of...

A 1.8 cm tall object is placed 5 cm to the left of a converging
lens (lens #1) with a focal length of 1.3 cm. To the right of this
converging lens is a diverging lens (lens #2) that has a focal
length of 2.6 cm. The diverging lens is placed 22.4 cm from the
converging lens. Where is the final image, is it real or virtual,
and is it upright or inverted?

The focal point on either side of the lens is marked by a small
“x”. You will notice that when you move the object (on the left),
the real image (on the right) moves as well.
What happens to the real image as you move the object toward the
lens? Is the image upright or inverted?
As you move the object inside of the focal point, you should
notice that the rays on the right side of the lens start...
