Convex Refractive Surface - Low Index to High Index A spherical convex refractive surface exists between air and glass as shown in the attached Fgure. 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 convex refractive surface produces an image. In the absence of the convex refractive surface, the image is formed at the location of the dashed line in the Fgure. The image location is 100 . 0 mm to the right of the location of the convex surface. However, this is the image location in the air before the glass convex 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 convex refractive surface. Express your answer in

Express your answer accurately to within four signiFcant Fgures. ±or the image distance, indicate whether it is left or right of the convex surface. Put your answers in the spaces provided. Answer the other questions given below. On the Fgure, prepare an accurate (drafting quality using a straight edge) ray trace diagram that incorporates 1) the parallel ray, 2) the chief ray, and 3) the focal ray for the above case. Magnitude of the image distance from the convex surface = mm The image is to the (left) (right) of the convex surface. (Circle one.) Magnitude of the linear magniFcation = Sign of the linear magniFcation is (positive) (negative). (Circle one.) The image is (real) (virtual). (Circle one.)...
