Correct option is D)

Given: The magnifications produced by a convex lens for two different positions of an object are m1 β and m 2 β respectively (m 1 β >m 2 β

). If d is the distance of separation between the two positions of the object

To find the focal length of the lens

Solution:

Separation between object and image for first position,

D=v+u

where u,v are the object distance and image distance, respectively.

So, magnification m 1 β = u v β βΉv=um 1 β ....(i)

When the lens is at second position,

d=v-u So, m 2 β = v u β βΉu=vm 2 β ......(ii) So, m 1 β m 2 β =1

From lens equation and using eqn (i), we get

f 1 β = v 1 β + u 1 β βΉ f 1 β = um 1 β 1 β + u 1 β βΉ f 1 β = um 1 β 1+m 1 β β βΉu= m 1 β f(m 1 β +1) β .........(iii)

From lens equation and using eqn (ii), we get

f 1 β = v 1 β + u 1 β βΉ f 1 β = vm 2 β 1 β + v 1 β βΉ f 1 β = vm 2 β 1+m 2 β β βΉv= m 2 β f(m 2 β +1) β .........(iv)

substituting the values of eqn(iii) and(iv) in the following equation, we get

d=vβu βΉd= m 2 β f(m 2 β +1) β β m 1 β f(m 1 β +1) β βΉd=f( m 1 β m 2 β m 1 β (m 2 β +1)βm 2 β (m 1 β +1) β ) βΉf= m 1 β m 2 β +m 1 β βm 1 β m 2 β βm 2 β dm 1 β m 2 β β βΉf= m 1 β βm 2 β dm 1 β m 2 β β but m 1 β m 2 β =1

Therefore the focal length becomes,

f= m 1 β βm 2 β d β

**CONCEPT:**β

It is also a ratio between the distance of the image to the distance of the object from the lens.

βm=hiho=vu

If magnification is more than 1, the image is magnified and if it is less than one image is diminished.

If magnification is positive, the image is erect, virtual and if it is negative, the image is inverted, real.

EXPLANATION:

βMagnification, m = +2 represents the case of an **Enlarged** image and hence it must be a Convex Lens.

The image formed by a Convex lens is **Erect and Virtual.**

Hence the image is **erect, virtual, and larger than the object.**

Additional Information

CONVEX LENS CONCAVE LENS

Coverges all the light rays at a single point. Diverges all the light rays from a single point.

Thicker from the middle and thinner from the sides. Thicker at the ends and thinner from the middle.

Magnification may be Positive or Negative Magnification is always Positive.

An image formed is erect and virtual. Enlarged if the object is placed between lens and 2F otherwise Diminished. An image formed is inverted, virtual, and diminished

**Important Note:**A Positive magnification shows the image is virtual and erect (upright) and a negative one shows the image is real and inverted.

For concave mirror, focal length, f = -18 cm Magnification, m=+3 m=-(v)/(u)=(h(i))/(h(o))=3 impliesv=-3u Applying mirror formula, (1)/(v)+(1)/(u)=(1)/(f) (1)/(-3u)+(1)/(u)=(1)/(-18) u=-12cm Hence, position of object is -12 cm.

For concave mirror, focal length, f = -18 cm Magnification, m=+3

m=β v u = h i h o =3 m=-vu=hiho=3 βv=β3u βv=-3u

Applying mirror formula,

1 v + 1 u = 1 f 1v+1u=1f 1 β3u + 1 u = 1 β18 1-3u+1u=1-18 u=β12cm u=-12cm

Hence, position of object is -12 cm.
