# One side of radius of curvature R2=120cm of a convexo-convex lens of material of refractive index n=1.5 and focal ength f1=40 cm is silvered. It is placed on a horizontal surface with the silvered surface in contact with it.Another convex lens of focal length f2=20cm is fixed coaxially d=10cm above 1st lens.A point object on axis give riseto an image coincident with it.Findthe height of the object above the upper lens

Dear student,

Let AB represent an object placed at right angles to the principal axis at a distance greater than the focal length f of the convex lens. The image A1B1 is formed beyond 2F2 and is real and inverted.

OA = Object distance = u

OA1 = Image distance = v

OF2 = Focal length = f

OAB and OA1B1 are similar

But we know that OC = AB

the above equation can be written as

From equation (1) and (2), we get

Dividing equation (3) throughout by uvf

All the best.
