# A plano-convex of refractive index 1.5 and radius of curvature 30 cm is silvered at the curved surface. Now this lens has been used to form the image of an object. At what distance from this lens, an object be placed in order to have a real image of the size of the object?

A
20 cm
B
30 cm
C
60 cm
D
80 cm

#### From lens makers formula, 1fl=(μ−1)(1R1−1R2)=(1.5−1)(1∞−1−30)=160Also, the focal length of the combination can be given by :−1F=2fl−1fm−1F=260−1−15⇒F=−10cmHence the object should be placed at a distance 2F=2×10cm=20cm from lens to get a real image of the same size of the object.

A bi-convex lens is formed with two plano-convex lenses as shown in the figure. Refractive index n of the first lens is 1.5 and that of the second lens is 1.2. Both curved surfaces are of the same radius of curvature R = 14 cm. For this bi-convex lens, for an object distance of 40 cm, the image distance will be
