Magnification and Power of lenses

Magnifying glasses use converging lenses that create an magnified virtual image

  • The object being magnified has to be closer than the focal length
  • Light rays dont come from the object being magnified as it is a virtual image
  • You cant project a virtual image onto a screen

Magnification Formula

Magnification = Image height/Object height
