Help please!!

Hello Brilliantians!

Please help me with question number 11 & 12.

Also suggest any good book or website for studying geometrical optics.

Thanks!

For question 11, there is missing information. All the options are possible.

For question 12, no image should be formed.

The second black line is the concave lens.

The red lines, or the rays of light, would diverge upon hitting the concave lens, and the rays would not intersect again. Since in order for another image to be formed after the light hit the concave lens, the 2 rays of light has to intersect, there would be no image formed. Julian Poon · 1 year, 9 months ago

11- 6cm 12 - shifts away from the lens system Rishabh Singhal · 1 year, 8 months ago

@Rishabh Singhal Hints for 11 which should be enough to solve it.

  1. Note that linear magnification of a lens is given by \(\large \frac{v}{u}\). Linear magnification is length of image divided by length of object.

  2. The second crucial thing to note is that focal length remains unchanged in both the cases. Note that \(\large \frac{1}{f} = \frac{1}{v} - \frac{1}{u}\).
