Question

A thin convex lens is made of a material of refractive index 1.6. An object is kept at a distance of a from lens on the principal axis as shown in the figure. The radius of curvature of the surface are 10 cm and 5 cm. Now, the lens is reversed such that the face having radius of curvature 5 cm lies close to the object. The difference in image position as obtained for both the cases is equal to:-

A
$$0.4 u$$
B
$$0.6 u$$
C
$$0.8 u$$
D
$$0$$
Solution
Verified by Toppr

Correct option is D. $$0$$
$$\begin{array}{l}\text { calculating focus in first case }\rightarrow\\R_{1}=10\mathrm{~cm}\\R_{2}=5\mathrm{~cm} \\\mu=\text { refractive index }\end{array}$$
using formula
$$\begin{aligned} \frac{1}{f} &=\left(\frac{\mu}{1}-4\right)\left(\frac{1}{R_{1}}-\frac{1}{R_{2}}\right) \\ \frac{4}{f} &=(1.6-1)\left(\frac{1}{10}-\frac{1}{-5}\right) \\ \frac{1}{f} &=(0.6)\left[\frac{1}{10}+\frac{1}{5}\right) \\ f &=50 / 9 \mathrm{~cm} \end{aligned}$$
calculating focus in second case $$\rightarrow$$
$$\begin{array}{l}R_{1}=\operatorname{5cm} \\R_{2}=10\mathrm{~cm}\end{array}$$
$$\frac{1}{f}=(0.6)\left[\frac{1}{5}+\frac{1}{10}\right]$$
$$f=\frac{50}{9} \mathrm{~cm}$$
The focus of lens
doen't change by reversing
its orientation.
So the difference in image position=0
Hence option ' $$D$$ is correct.

A thin biconvex lens of refractive index 3/2 and radius of curvature 50 cm is placed on a reflecting convex surface of radius of curvature 100 cm. A point object is placed on the principal axis of the system such that its final image coincides with itself. Now, few drops of a transparent liquid is placed between the mirror and lens such that final image of the object is at infinity. Find refractive index of the liquid used. Also, find the position of the object.
