## The accommodation limits for Nearsighted Nick’s eyes are 18.0 cm and 80.0 cm. When he wears his glasses, he is able to see faraway objects clearly. At what minimum distance is he able to see objects clearly?

To determine
The minimum distance Nearsighted Nick would be able to see objects clearly.

### Explanation of Solution

His lens must form an upright, virtual image of a very distant object. So, the object distance is infinity. So, the focal length is,

f=q=80.0cm .

If this lens is to form a virtual image at his near point, the object distance is,

p=qfqf

Substitute 18.0cm for q and 80.0cm for f .

p=(18
