1 Converging Lenses  If we think of a double convex lens as consisting of prisms, we can see how light going through it converges at a focal point (assuming the lens is properly shaped).

2 Diverging Lenses  A double concave lens can also be modeled by prisms:

3 Converging and Diverging Lenses

Terminology of ConvexLenses Principal axis Optic axis Optical centre Principal Focus Secondary Focus Focal Length In reality, light bends twice at the air / glass boundaries On diagram, we show that light ray bends once: on the optic axis

Concave Lens Terminology 5 Concave Lens is diverging. The Principal focus is virtual, in front of the lens.

6 Principle Rays – Converging Lens Lens has two focal points because light can go both ways and still focuses on one spot

Principle Rays – Converging Lens (Convex) 7 Incident RayReflected Ray Parallel to principal AxisThrough the focal point Parallel to principal Axis On the vertex of the lensGoes straight through and does NOT change direction

8 Principle Rays – Diverging Lens Concave lens also has secondary focus, behind the lens. On diagrams, light rays also bend on the optic axis.

10 Ray Diagram - Converging Lens Location of the image of an object located at 2F

11 Ray diagrams– Converging Lens Location the image of an object located in front of F

12 Ray Diagram - Diverging Lens  Your turn: Locate the image of an object located between F and 2F for a diverging lens

13 Image Types – Convering Lens The convex lens forms different image types depending on where the object is located with respect to the focal point Ssize can be enlarged or reduced Aattitude can be inverted or upright Limage can be infront or behind the lens Timage can be real or virtual

14 Image Types – Diverging Lens The concave lens forms same type of image no matter where object is located: Sreduced Aupright Lin front of the lens Tvirtual

16 The Thin-Lens Equation Sign Convention Distances: positive for real negative for virtual Heights : positive above axis negative below axis

17 The Thin-Lens Equation d o = the distance from the mirror to the object d i = the distance from the mirror to the image f = the focal length

18 Focal Length f Object Distance d o Image Distance d i + Converging Lens (Convex) Object is in front of mirror Image is REAL (opposite side of object) - Diverging Lens (Concave) N/A. d o is always positive Image is VIRTUAL (same side as object) Sign conventions: LENS Equation

19 Magnification Equation for LENS M M If |M| > 1, image is larger than object (enlarged) If |M| < 1, image is smaller than object (reduced) M > 0 for up-right images M < 0 for inverted images -
