Answer #1

Given,

focal length,f = 12cm

image distance, v =17 cm

image height, h' = 8mm = 0.8 cm

let us consider, object distance be u and object height be h

(a)

Using lens formula

u=40.8 cm (object position)

we know

Magnification,M = -v/u = h'/h

i.e. h=-(h'xu)/v = -(0.8x40.8)/17= -1.92cm

(b)Since M = -v/u= -40.8/12 = -3.4 is negative so Image is inverted.

(c)Since both u and v are positive so object and image on opposite sides of the object.

(d)

Hope this will help you. Please let me know if there is any doubt and please land a like. Thanks.
