284CHAPTER 23 23.32Comparing the given equation to the thin lens equation, 111pqf+=, we see that the lens is a convergent lens ( )0f>with focal length 7.50 cmf=. Also, the image distance is negative ( )3.50q=−p, meaning the image is virtual. The lateral magnification is 3.50qppp−=+3.50Mso the image is upright and enlarged. (a) Using the information deduced above, the thin lens equation becomes 1113.507.50 cm−=giving ()17.50 cm15.36 cm3.50=+p(b) The image distance is then 3.50 5.36 cm18.8 cmq= −(c) See the ray diagram at the right. ±²³(d) A simple magnifier is a device that uses a convergent lens to form an upright, enlarged, virtual image of a real object.
