Unformatted text preview: the lens, which is the image distance i . Because the image is upside down compared to the object, the image is inverted. The magnification, i/o = -5cm/7.5cm = -2/3, confirms that the image is inverted (i<0) and that the image is smaller than the object by a factor of 2/3. The thin lens equation can solve the problem without graphing: The thin lens equation verifies that the image should be located 5cm to the right of the lens. Because i >0, the image is real. The magnification is again -2/3, making the image smaller and inverted compared to the object....
