Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points A 9 . 5 cm focal length converging lens is used to magnify small newspaper print 2 mm high. Calculate the height of the image for the maximum angular magnification for a normal eye. Assume the eye focuses at the near point of 25 cm . Correct answer: 7 . 26316 mm. Explanation: Basic Concepts: M = h h Angular magnification m = Lens equation 1 p + 1 q = 1 f . Solution: The size of an image on the retina depends upon the angular magnification. The angular magnification is the ratio of the angle subtended by an object with a lens in use to that subtended by the object placed at the near point with no lens . The angular magnification is a maximum when the image is at the near point of the eye; i.e. , when q = 25 cm for a normal eye. The object distance can be found from the thin lens formula p = q f f q = ( 25 cm) (9 . 5 cm) (9 . 5 cm) ( 25 cm) = 6 . 88406 cm . If we make small angle approximations, h ( 25 cm) , h p , then the angular magnification becomes m = = h p h q = 1 q f .
