Spherical mirror formulas 1 1 1 p q f + = I O h q M h p q = - Object distance, image distance and focal length: Focal length and sphere radius: 2 R f = Object distance, image distance and magnification: 2 R f = - Converging mirror Diverging mirror
The lens maker’s formula (lens in vacuum or air) - - = 2 1 1 1 1 1 R R ) n ( f n : index of refraction of the lens material. R 1 : radius of near surface. R 2 : radius of far surface. The sign conventions for the radii of the two surfaces: 1. The near or far surface of the lens is with respect to the focal point F . Near side is surface 1, far side is surface 2. 2. The sign of the radius is then defined as: + ” if the center is on the far side; “ - ” if the center is on the near side 1. In this convention, positive f means converging lens, negative f means diverging lens. F near surface far surface

Steps to determine the signs Pick up the focal point, hence the focal length in question. Mark the near surface S 1 , and far surface S 2 . Based on the curve of these two surfaces, mark the center C 1 for S 1 and C 2 for S 2 . Mark R 1 for S 1 and R 2 for S 2 . Now decide on the sign of R 1 and R 2 , based on its center on far side (+) or near side (-).

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
