1/f= (nlmS/n 1)(1/R11/R2). Here R1 is the medium coordinate of the center of the ﬁrst spherical surface With
the origin being at the lens, and R2, that of the second
surface. Extra: What is f, if the lens is ﬂipped over with the
crescent facing to the right? Explanation: l/f = (1.5/1  1)[1/RB + 1/ RA] =
0.5[1/(2a) + Ila] = 0.25/a, This leads to f=4a. Ans=1. Extra: If ﬂipped over, 1/f= (1.5/1 — 1)[l/RA  l/ RB] =
0.5[1/a  1/(2a)] = 0.25/a. Thus the focal length remains
the same. 36.4.4 Curvature in 2lens problem #1 #2 . m to» f

Extra: Show the curvature at <4>, i.e. immediately after the passage through lens #2 is 3f, or q2=0.33f. Explanation: From the sketch, C3=l/(q1d)=l/(0.Sf)=2/f.
Extra: C4: C3+1/f= 3/f=1/q2. q2=0.33f. 36 .4 .3 Two—lens problem
#1 #2 p1 d
Given two identical lenses, f1=fz=f. The object is located
at a distance p1=2f from lens #1. The separation is d=5f. Based on the ray diagram determine the property of the
imae formed b the two lens s tern. Hint: Lens #1 alone gives a real image at ql=p1:2f.
Extra: Show the final image is to the right of lens #2 at a
distance q2=1.5f. Explanation: We indicate the situation qualitatively, and
leave the contruction of an accurate diagram to the reader.
The image formed by lens #1 is inverted & real. It
becomes the object of #2. The image formed by #2 is
again real & inverted. Put all together, the final image is
upright & real. Extra: The object distance to the lens #2, p2=d—q1=3f. For
#2, this gives 1lq2=1/f—1/p2=1/f—1/(3f)=2/(3f). So the final
image is to the right of lens #2, at q2=1.5f. #1 #2 36 .4 .5 Twolens problem Given: Focal lengths of #1 & #2 are: flza, & f2: — a. The separation is d=1.5a, and the object is at p1:2a from
#1. Find: Find the location of the “object” for lens #2, p2.

Hint: Check first q1=2a. Notice that the image of #1 is
the “virtual object” for lens #2.
Extra: Show that qzza. Explanation: Using 1/q1= —1/p1+1/f= —1/(2a)+1/a:1/(2a),
one gets q1=2a. This leads to pzzdqlzlﬁa  2a 2 — 0.5a.
Extra: 1/q2=—1/p2+1/f2= —1/(—0.5a)+1/(—a). So q2=a. Digression: The method of curvature may help one to
visualize the situation. For lens #1 with C1=—1/(2f), C2 = C1+1/f=1/ (2f). This implies that the curvature before
#2 is C3: 1/(q1—d)=1/(0.5a). So the curvature immediately
behind #2, C4=C3+llf2 = 1/(0.5a)  11a 2 Ila. This leads to q2=1/ qua. ( The sketch is not drawn to
