#### Given,μL=1.5Rm=30cm, radius of curvature of mirrorThe net power of the system,P=2PL+Pm (two times refraction and one time reflection)1f=2fL+1fm. . . . . .(1)The focal length of lens, is given byfL=(μLμa−1)(1R1−1R2)fL=(1.51−1)(1infinite−1−30)fL=0.530=60cmThe focal length of mirror,fm=Rm2=302=15cmEquation (1),1f=260+115f=10cmFor the real image and the same size of the object, Magnification, m=vu=1v=uWhen object is at the center of the curvature of the system.R=2f=2×10=20cmThe correct option is A.
