Unformatted text preview: fundamental lens equation, you can plug in infinity, but you wont get a number because you cant measure infinity, at 75mm. For values lower, the image is just virtual. There was one value for d0 that got us 0 percent error. That was when d0 was 450. There were some possible sources of error in our lab. The room wasnt completely dark when doing this experiment so there may have been miscalculations due to that reason. It was hard measuring the light image that showed up with a ruler. Other than that the percent error was relatively low. But, Akshay Patel 4/2/11 Period 10 the percent error increased as the value for d0 went down. It was harder to measure the image, as it got bigger. The ruler can only do so much. The units we worked with had to do with the percent error, but we cant measure lower than millimeters. The human eye can only do so much....
