Practice Problem on Lenses in Combination
Two lenses are placed on the x-axis.
The first lens is a converging lens with focal length 5 cm placed at x = -8 cm.
The second lens is a diverging lens with focal length 5 cm placed at x = 10 cm.
If an object is placed at x = -16 cm,
what is the position of the image, image type (virtual or real),
and magnification of the image?
ANSWER = (x = 7.59 cm, virtual, m = -0.86)
