A microscope is a device where a first lens makes a real image of an object, and that real image is then viewed with a second lens used as a magnifying glass to make a virtual image that is enlarged.

The picture shows the two converging lenses of a compound microscope: the objective lens (on the left) near which the object to be viewed is placed, and the eyepiece lens (on the right) which functions as the magnifying glass. The objective lens has a focal length fobj (with focal points indicated by an "x"), the eyepiece lens has a focal length feye (with focal points indicated by an "o"), and the two lenses are separated by a distance L. The picture may not be to scale, but it will at least allow you to correctly determine the kinds of images formed by each lens.


C. The distance between the lenses is L = 11 cm, and the focal lengths are fobj = 1 cm and feye = 8 cm. The object to be viewed, a cell, is placed a distance of 1.333 cm in front of the objective lens. What is the image distance of the objective lens image?
iobj = _____ cm

D. How far is the objective lens image from the eyepiece lens?
oeye = _____ cm

E. What is the magnitude of the distance between the eyepiece lens and the image that it forms?
|ieye| = ______ cm

Expert Answer

Step 1

C.

Assume that all distances right to the length have positive sign and the distances left to the lens have negative sign.

Using lens formula, the image distance of the objective lens image is
