3. How do you verify experimentally that the focal length of a convex lens is increased when it is kept in water.
                                                                 (OR)
Explain how the focal length of the lens depends upon the surrounding medium.                                                                                                 (AS 3) 4 Marks
A: AIM:
To verify change in focal length of a lens when it is dipped in water.
Apparatus: Convex lens of known focal length, circular lens holder, tall cylindrical glass tumbler, black stone, water.
Procedure:
* Take a convex lens whose focal length is known.
* Take a glass jar whose height is twice that of focal length of lens.
* Take a black coloured stone and place it in a jar.

            
* take a circular holding lens and view the stone keeping if at a distance less than focal length. And go on increasing the distance between the stone and lens, you can view the stone till the distance between stone and lens is equal to focal length.
* After the focal length distance you can't view the stone.
* Now pour water in the glass tumbler and view the stone. By placing the lens at a distance which we did not view the stone.
* Now you can view the stone clearly. From this experiment we can conclude that the focal length goes on increasing with respective to media.

 

4. List out the apparatus required to find the focal length of a Convex lens and describe the procedure to find the focal length? (AS 3) 4 Marks
A: AIM:
To determine the focal length of a Convex lens.
Apparatus: Convex lens, meter scales, V-stand, screen, candle.
Procedure:
* Take a V-stand and place it on a long (nearly 2 m) table at the middle.
* Place a Convex lens on the V-stand.
* Light a candle and take it far away from the lens along the principal axis.
* Adjust the screen on the other side of the lens to get a clear image on it.
* Measure the distance between the V-stand and the screen. This value represents the image distance (v).
* Now place the candle at the distance of 60 cm from the lens, such that the flame of the candle lies along the principal axis of the lens.
* Adjust the screen to get a clear image and measure the values of object distance (u) and image distance (v) and note them in a table.
* Repeat the above step for various distances like 50 cm, 40 cm, 30 cm etc. Measure the image distance corresponding to each position of the object and note the values in the table.


* Calculate the focal length for each case, we find that the focal length remains constant for a given lens.

iv) From the table, the relation among u, v and f
    

6. Describe the image formation by a Convex lens for various positions of the object. (AS 1) 4 Marks
A:
i) Object at infinity: The rays coming from the object at infinity are parallel to principal axis and converge to the focal point after refraction. So, a point sized image is formed at the focal point

ii) Object placed beyond the centre of curvature on the principal axis: When an object is placed beyond the centre of curvature, a real, inverted and diminished image is formed on the principal axis between F1 and C1.
                                    
iii) Object placed at the centre of curvature: When an object is placed at the centre of curvature (C2) on the principal axis, a real inverted image is formed at C1, which is same size as that of the object.
                                        
iv) object placed between the centre of curvature and focal point: When an object is placed between centre of curvature (C2) and focus (F2) we will get an image which is real, inverted and magnified. This image will form beyond C1
                                      
v) Object located at focal point: When an object is placed at focus (F2), the image will be at infinity.
                                  
vi) Object place between focal point and optic centre: If we place an object between focus and optic centre, we will get an image which in virtual, erect and magnified."
