Unformatted text preview: Concave Refractive Surface - Low Index to High Index A spherical concave refractive surface exists between air and glass as shown in the attached figure. The radius of curvature of the refractive surface is 50 mm . The refrac- tive index of the air in the left-hand region (Region 1) is 1 . 000. The refractive index of the glass in the right-hand region (Region 2) is 1 . 500. Light propagates from left to right through this refractive surface. An optical system (not shown) to the left of the concave refractive surface produces an image. In the absence of the concave refractive surface, the image is formed at the location of the dashed line in the figure. The image location is 200 . mm to the right of the location of the concave surface. However, this is the image location in the air before the glass con- cave surface is added. The spacing between tick marks is 50 mm . Calculate, showing all work, the location of the image along the optical axis to the left or to the right of the concave refractive surface. Express your answer inthe left or to the right of the concave refractive surface....
