A sharp image is located 78.0 mm behind a 65.0mmfocallength converging lens. Find the object distance (a) using a ray diagram, (b) by calculation.
Solution
(a) From the ray diagram, the object distance is about six focal lengths, or 390 mm.
(b) We find the object distance from equation:

A stamp collector uses a converging lens with focal length 24 cm to view a stamp 18 cm in front of the lens. (a) Where is the image located? (b) What is the magnification?
Solution

We locate the image from equation:
which gives
The negative sign means the image is 72 cm behind the lens (virtual).

We find the magnification from equation:

Solution
We find the image distance from equation:
which gives
(a) With the new image distance is determined by

Both surfaces of a double convex lens have radii of 31.0 cm. If the focal length is 28.9 cm, what is the index of refraction of the lens material?
Solution
We find the index from the lensmaker’s equation:
Note! We using different sign convention than the Giancoli book.
A prescription for a corrective lens calls for The lensmaker grinds the lens from a “blank” with and a preformed convex front surface of radius of curvature of 40.0 cm. What should be the radius of curvature of the other surface?
Solution
We find the radius from the lensmaker’s equation:
;
Note! We using different sign convention than the Giancoli book.

A ray of light is refracted through three different materials (see figure below). Rank the materials according to their index of refraction, least to greatest.
Solution
By looking at the direction and the relative amount that the light rays bend at each interface, we can infer the relative sizes of the indices of refraction in the different materials (bends toward normal = faster material to slower material or smaller n material to larger n material; bends away from normal = slower material to faster material or larger n material to smaller n material). From the first material to the second material the ray bends toward the normal, thus it slows down and n_{1} < n_{2}. From the second material to the third material the ray bends away from the normal, thus it speeds up and n_{2} > n_{3}. Careful inspection shows that the ray in the third material does not bend back away from the normal as far as the ray was in the first material, thus the speed in the first material is the faster than in the third material and n_{1} < n_{3}. Thus, the overall ranking of indices of refraction is: n_{1} < n_{3} < n_{2}.

Monochromatic light falls on two very narrow slits 0.048 mm apart. Successive fringes on a screen 5.00 m away are 6.5 cm apart near the center of the pattern. Determine the wavelength and frequency of the light.
Solution
We find the location on the screen from equation:
For small angles, we have:

In a doubleslit experiment, it is found that blue light of wavelength 460 nm gives a secondorder maximum at a certain location on the screen. What wavelength of visible light would have a minimum at the same location?
Solution
For constructive interference of the second order for the blue light, we have
For destructive interference of the other light, we have

The only one of these that is visible light is

A light beam strikes a piece of glass at a 60.00° incident angle. The beam contains two wavelengths, 450.0 nm and 700.0 nm, for which the index of refraction of the glass is 1.4820 and 1.4742, respectively. What is the angle between the two refracted beams?
Solution
We find the angles of refraction in the glass from

Thus the angle between the refracted beams is
