A real image is formed by a convex lens. If we put a concave lens in contact with it, the combination again forms a real image. the new image

is closer to the lens system
is farther form the lens system
is at the original position
may be anywhere depending on the focal length of the concave lens.
Verified by Toppr

When we bring in contact a concave lens the effective focal length of the combination decreases.


according to above relation as f reduces, v increases.

Ram and Shyam observe a virtual image formed by a real object placed a distance f2 in front of a convex lens of focal length f. Now they want to use a concave lens having a focal length f so that a virtual image is formed at the same distance from the lens as before. Where should the object be kept relative to the concave lens
