Practice Problem on Lenses in Combination
Two lenses are placed on the x-axis.
The first lens is a diverging lens with focal length 15 cm placed at x = -8 cm.
The second lens is a diverging lens with focal length 6 cm placed at x = 2 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 = -2.30 cm, virtual, m = 0.18)
