1. T/F: A converging lens has a negative focal length.
Answer:
False. A converging lens has positive focal length. A diverging lens produces a virtual image (usually upright); converging lens usually produces inverted, real image.


2. Suppose a positive lens has a focal length f = 20cm and an object is placed at a distance of do = 50cm from this lens. Please calculate the image distance di for this situation.
_________________________________________________
Answer:
33.33 cm


3. For the above scenario, is the image virtual or real? Suppose the height of the object is ho = 10cm and the height of the image is hi = -16.7cm. Is the image inverted or upright?
_________________________________________________
Answer:
Converging lens so real; negative mag. so inverted


4. Draw a diagram of the eye. Please be sure to include at least the retina, iris, cornea, and lens.
