Unformatted text preview: Physics 320 Experiment 6 Object and Image Distances for a Thin Lens DATA SHEET Name: Bill Zacharias Date: May 14 2010 Prediction What kind of image will you see through a convex lens? An inverted image and/or a refinement of the image. The image will converge on infinity. What factors might affect the size of the image? The size of the curvature of the lens. What happens to the image if half of the lens is covered? When half of the lens is covered I predict that two of the light sources will not show. 1. Write a description of what happens to the image size when you change the position of the lens. 1 . 1 . When the distance of the lens is increased (farther away from the light source) the images size decreases while the focal point for the lens the image screen increase. 2. Describe whether the image is upright or inverted. 2 . 2 . The image is inverted 3. What happens to the image if half of the lens is covered with an opaque object?...
