Procedure: Put light source far form converging lens. Approximate the focal length, the distance from the center of the lens to the screen. Repeat for multiple lenses and thin lenses. Description: converging lens and diverging lens. Theory: Two types of lenses are converging and diverging lenses. A converging lens is thicker in the middle than at the edge, and can have either two convex surfaces or one convex and once concave surface with the convex surface being more sharply curved. A diverging lens I thicker at the edge and can have two concave surfaces or one concave and one convex surface with the concave surface more sharply curved. The focal point is where the light rays parallel to the axis of the lens coverges at a point. The focal length is the distance from the focal point ot the lens. Light rays diverge on the other side of a diverging lens, on a point behind the lens. The lens equation is 1/s + 1/i= 1/f.

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.
