# A concave lens has focal length of 20cm. At what distance from the lens a 5 cm tall object be placed so that it forms an image at a distance of 15 cm from the lens? Also calculate the size of the image formed.

Given,

Focal length of concave lens f = -20 cm

Height of object h1= 5 cm

Image distance v = -15 cm

Object distance u =???

Height of image h2 =???

We know that lens formula is: Substituting the given values in the formula:     u = -60 cm   Substituting the value object height here  Height or size of the image = 1.25 cm
