HideShow resource information

1. How do you find a focal length?

  • By measuring the angle of refraction.
  • By measuring the distance between the focal point and the image.
  • By focusing a distant object on a piece of paper through the lens. The focal length is the distance between the centre of the lens and the image.
  • By using a mirror.
