This simulation allows the user to observe various real images through lenses. The user can change the index of refraction of the lens, the ratio of its thickness to its radius, and its overall shape.

This is a part of the "Learn Physics using Java" library of simulations.

Please note that this resource requires Java Applet Plug-in.
