what will be the magnification if the object is moved 0.5m closer to the lens?

Expert Answer:

given that P = 2.5 D

f = 1/ 2.5 = 0.4 m = 40 cm

m = 2

since m = v / u, v = 2 u

using lens formula

1/f = 1/v - 1/u

1/40 = 1/2u - 1/u

1/40 = -1/2u

u = - 20 cm = - 0.2 m

Note that this value of u (< 0.5 m )indicates that some value in the question is incorrect. Plz verify the correctness of the question.
