CBSE Class 10 Answered

A lens of focal length 12cm forms an erect image three times the size of the object. What is the distance between the object and image?

Expert Answer
If the image is magnified and erect means, the lens is of converging type.
 
Magnification m = v/u = 3 
 
where v is lens-to-image distance and u is lens-to-object distance.
 
hence we get v = 3u  ................. (1)
 
We have lens equation :- (1/v) - (1/u) = 1/f  ............ (2)
 
By applying cartesian sign convention, because object and image both are left side of lens,
 
we get from eqn.(1) and eqn.(2) as ,   begin mathsize 14px style negative fraction numerator 1 over denominator 3 u end fraction plus 1 over u space equals space 1 over 12 end style
By solving above equation, we get u = 8 cm
 
hence from eqn.(1)  v = 3×8 cm = 24 cm
 
Distance between image and object = ( 24 - 8 ) = 16 cm
