A concave lens of focal length 15 cm forms an image 10 cm from the lens. How far is the object from the lens ? Draw the ray diagram.
Here, Object distance, u = ? (To be calculated)
Image distance, v =- 10 cm (To the left of concave lens)
Focal length, f =- 15 cm (It is a concave lens)
Now, putting these values in the lens formula:
Putting the values of v and f in the above equation, we get
Object distance, u = -30 cm
Thus, the object is placed at a distance of 30 cm from the concave lens. The minus sign with object distance shows that the object is on its left side. The diagram is shown as:

"A convex lens can form a magnified erect as well as magnified inverted image of an object placed in front of it." Draw ray diagram to justify this statement stating the position of the object with respect to the lens in each case.
