Image Focusing: Object distance Object distance (s o ): Distance of a light-reflecting object from the lens Object distance (s o )
Image Focusing: Image distance Object distance (s o ) Image distance (s i ) Image distance (s i ): Distance of an object’s image from the lens Image distance (s i ) Object distance (s o ) =

Image Focusing: Focal distance Focal distance (f): Image distance when the object distance is infinity Focal distance (f) Object distance (s o ) Image distance (s i ) Focal distance (f) = Image distance (s i ) Object distance (s o ) =
Image Focusing: Focal distance Focal distance (f) Focal distance (f) Focal distance (f): Image distance when the object distance is infinity Indicates the lens strength (amount of refraction)

Image Focusing: The eye Cornea does 2/3 of refraction (light bending) Fixed refracting power Lens does 1/3 of refraction Variable refracting power Accommodation Image distance in the eye is fixed
Lens accommodation Ciliary muscle contracts zonule fibers become looser lens becomes thicker

Unaccommodated lens: s i > eyeball length and image appears blurry Image Focusing: The eye Accommodated lens: s i = eyeball length and image appears crisp
Image focusing: Thin lens formula Distance form of the thin lens formula : 1/f = 1/s i + 1/s o Focal distance Image distance Focal distance Object distance (s o ) Image distance (s i ) Object distance
