A lens is cut into two equal halves
(i) along the principal axis
(ii) Perpendicular to principal axis. What will be the focal length of each half?
(i) If the lens is cut along the principal axis than there will be no change in the focal length of the lens because the radius of curvature will remain the same, hence the focal length will remain unchanged.
(ii) If the lens is cut perpendicular to the principal axis than the focal length will change it will be twice the focal length of the original lens because the radius of curvature will increase and R = 2F.

For which position of the object does a convex lens form a virtual and erect image? Explain with the help of a ray diagram.Xam idea - Science
Draw a ray diagram to show the path of the reflected ray corresponding to an incident ray which is direct towards the principal focus of a convex mirror. Mark on it angle of incidence and the angle of reflection.

An object of height 4.0 cm is placed at a distance of 30 cm from the optical centre‘O’ of a convex lens of focal length 20 cm. Draw a ray diagram to find the position and size of the image formed. Mark optical centre ‘O’ and principal focus ‘F’ on the diagram. Also find the approximate ratio of size of the image to the size of the object.Science - Board Papers
