Question

A slide projector needs to create a 90-cm-high image of a 2.0-cm-tall slide. The screen is 250 cm from the slide.

- What focal length does the lens need? Note the sign convention and indicate + or –
- How far should you place the lens from the slide?

Answer #1

Using lens equation

1/f = 1/u + 1/v

And magnification of image is given by:

M = -v/u = hi/ho

Given that

ho = height of object = 2.0 cm = 2.0*10^-2 m

hi = height of image = -90 cm = -0.9 m (since in image produced on screen by projector is inverted)

M = -v/u = -0.90/(2.0*10^-2)

v = 45*u

Now also given that

u + v = distance from slide to screen = 250 cm = 2.50 m

u + v = 2.50

u + 45*u = 2.50

u = 2.50/46 = 0.0543 m = 5.43*10^-2 m

u = Object distance = 5.43 cm (Answer of part B.)

v = 45*u = 45*5.43*10^-2

v = image distance = 2.44 m

So Using values of u and v

1/f = 1/u + 1/v

f = u*v/(u + v)

f = (5.43*10^-2)*2.44/(5.43*10^-2 + 2.44)

f = +0.05311

f = +5.31*10^-2 m

f = focal length of lens = **+5.31 cm** (Answer of
part A)

u = object distance from slide = **5.43 cm**
(Answer of part B)

A thin lens is used to create a 98-cm-high image of a
2.0-cm-tall slide. The screen used to form this image is 300 cm
from the slide.
a) Draw the ray diagram for this setup.
b) What focal length does the lens need?
c) How far should you place the lens from the slide?

A) A 2.0-cmcm-tall object is 16.5 cmcm in front of a diverging
lens that has a -25 cmcm focal length.
1. Calculate the image position.
2. Calculate the image height.
B) A 2.0-cmcm-tall object is 12 cmcm in front of a concave
mirror that has a 25 cmcm focal length.
1. Calculate the image position.
2. Calculate the image height.
C) A slide projector needs to create a 90-cmcm-high image of a
2.0-cmcm-tall slide. The screen is 290 cmcm from...

The projection lens in a certain slide projector is a single
thin lens. A slide 24.4 mm high is to be projected so that its
image fills a screen 1.88 m high. The slide-to-screen distance is
2.90 m. (Enter your answers to at least one decimal place.)
(a) Determine the focal length of the projection lens (mm)
(b) How far from the slide should the lens of the projector be
placed to form the image on the screen (mm)?

You wish to project the image of a slide on a screen 9.50 m from
the lens of a slide projector.
1) if the slide is palced 13 cm from the lens what focal length
lens is required
2) if the dimensions of the picture on a 35-mm color slide are
24mmx36mm what is the minimum size of the projector screen required
to accommodate the image?

In a projector, an object (an image on an LCD screen) is 5.1 cm
from a lens with focal length 5 cm. Draw the ray diagram for this
situation and calculate the distance to the image. What is the
magnification? Is the image real or virtual?

Problem 6
Part 1
A certain slide projector has a 100 mm focal length lens. (a)
How far away is the screen, if a slide is placed 103 mm from the
lens and produces a sharp image? (b) If the slide is 24.0 by 36.0
mm, what are the dimensions of the image?
Part 2
A doctor examines a mole with a 15.0 cm focal length magnifying
glass held 13.5 cm from the mole (a) Where is the image? (b)...

A certain slide projector has a 100 mm focal length lens. (a)
How far away is the screen, if a slide is placed 103 mm from the
lens and produces a sharp image? (b) If the slide is 24.0 by 36.0
mm, what are the dimensions of the image? Explicitly show how you
follow the steps in the Problem-Solving Strategy for lenses.

A 1.0 cm tall object is 2.0 cm in front of a converging lens
with a focal length of 3.0 cm.
A. Determine the image position and height by using ray tracing
to find image
B. Calculate the image position and height

A 2.0-cm-tall candle flame is 2.0 m from a wall. You happen to
have a lens with a focal length of 32 cm. How many places can you
put the lens to form a well-focused image of the candle flame on
the wall? For each location, what are the height and orientation of
the image?

A 7·cm tall candle is placed 175·cm from a lens with a focal
length of +35·cm. Note: enter the absolute value of your
answers for all distances and heights ... use the signs to
determine the type and orientation of the images.
(a) How far from the lens will the image
be? cm.
(b) How tall will the image be? cm
Now, imagine that the candle is moved closer, so that it is only
14·cm from the lens.
(d) How far from...
