Unformatted text preview: we were able to calculate the object distance (Do) and image distance (Di). We then plotted this data and proceeded to make the line linear it by taking the inverse of both Do and Di. We concluded that the system specific model from our data was 1/Di = [-1.04] Do + 0.136cm. This was similar to the rest of class as we all did the same experiment. The general model for this experiment was 1/Di +1/Do = 1/f. Our model was similar to this model in the sense that we had a direct relationship to the Do and Di. We also found in this experiment that the focal length for our lens was approximately 8cm and we also found that we could not obtain an image closer then 8.5cm from the lamp which indicated that the minimum focal length was around 8.5cm. The largest source of error in this experiment came from how we determined was a clear image was on the screen. This could have been seen differently by each of us in the group and led to less then accurate results....
