Problem 35.7: Image location, point source

Please wait for the animation to completely load.

A lens is shown with a point source of light. You can drag the source and change the orientation of its rays by dragging its hotspots (position is given in meters). Restart.

  1. If an object were placed at x = 0 m, where would the image of that object be located?
  2. Would the image be upright or inverted?
