Segment N: Spherical Lenses

12 Apr.,2023


-Apply the concept of refraction to image formation with spherical lenses.

-Compare and contrast convex and concave lenses conceptually and mathematically, understanding and applying their similarities and differences.

-Compare and contrast real and virtual images formed by lenses.

-Define and apply the terms center of curvature, principal axis, focal length, and radius of curvature.

-Experiment with convex and concave lenses and understand how they are used in real life.

-Describe the types of images that form for convex and concave lenses when objects are beyond the center of curvature, at the center of curvature, between the center of curvature and the focal point, at the focal point, and between the focal point and the lens.
