. If the object in Problem 12 is moved toward the lens Loa position 8 cm away, what will the image position be? Describe the nature of this new image.

To determine

The location of image from the convex lens when object distance is 8cm and focal length of lens is 10cm.


Given info:

Object distance = s=+8cm

Focal length of lens = f=+10cm

By sign convention, object distance is taken as positive and focal length of convex lens is also taken as positive.

Formula used:

By lens formula,

Image distance can be written as



Substituting the given values, we get
