Question

# An achromatic doublet is a converging lens of equivalent focal length 100cm. If the dispersive powers of the material of the lenses are in the ratio 1:2. The focal lengths of the two lenses are:

A
50cm,+100cm
B
+50cm,100cm
C
50cm,100cm
D
+50cm,+100cm

#### f=100cm, Now, from question: f1:f2=1:2⟹f2=2f1For an achromatic combination, f1w1+f2w2=0Also, the effective focal length of the combination will be,1f=1f1+1f2Solving these simultaneously and substituting the values, the obtained focal lengths are: fo=50 and fe=−100
