Light - Reflection and Reflection


A doctor has prescribed a corrective lens of power +1.5 D. Find the focal length of the lens. Is the prescribed lens diverging or converging?


Here, P = +1.5 D

We know,

1.5 = frac{1}{f}
f = frac{1}{1.5}

f = 0.66 m

Because the focal length is positive, the prescribed lens is converging.
