The due time is Central time. 001 (part 1 of 2) 10 points The left face of a biconvex lens has a radius of curvature of 5 . 5 cm, and the right face has a radius of curvature of 21 cm. The index of refraction of the glass is 1 . 44. Calculate the focal length of the lens. Correct answer: 9 . 90566 cm. Explanation: Given : R 1 = 5 . 5 cm , R 2 =- 21 cm , and n = 1 . 44 . Using the lens makers equation, 1 f = ( n- 1) 1 R 1- 1 R 2 = ( n- 1)( R 2- R 1 ) R 1 R 2 f = R 1 R 2 ( n- 1)( R 2- R 1 ) = (5 . 5 cm)(- 21 cm) (1 . 44- 1)(- 21 cm- 5 . 5 cm) = 9 . 90566 cm . 002 (part 2 of 2) 10 points Calculate the focal length if the radii of cur- vature of the two faces are interchanged. Correct answer: 9 . 90566 cm. Explanation: Given : R 1 = 21 cm and R 2 =- 5 . 5 cm . 1 f = ( n- 1) 1 R 1- 1 R 2 = ( n- 1)( R 2- R 1 ) R 1 R 2 f = R 1 R 2 ( n- 1)( R 2- R 1 ) = (21 cm)(- 5 . 5 cm) (1 . 44- 1)(- 5 . 5 cm- 21 cm) = 9 . 90566 cm . keywords: 003 (part 1 of 3) 10 points A converging lens of focal length 19 . 2 cm is separated by 49 . 8 cm from a converging lens of the focal length 4 . 2 cm. Find the position of the final image with respect to the second lens of an object placed 38 . 5 cm in front the first lens. Correct answer: 6 . 61661 cm. Explanation: Given : L = 49 . 8 cm , f 1 = 19 . 2 cm , f 2 = 4 . 2 cm , and p 1 = 38 . 5 cm . The thin lens equation gives the image dis- tance for the first lens: 1 f 1 = 1 p 1 + 1 q 1 = q 1 + p 1 p 1 q 1 p 1 q 1 = f 1 ( q 1 + p 1 ) q 1 = p 1 f 1 p 1- f 1 = (38 . 5 cm) (19 . 2 cm) 38 . 5 cm...
