QUESTION: 1

Section 1

Q. No. 1-8 carry 4 marks each.

The answer to each question is a SINGLE DIGIT INTEGER ranging from 0 to 9, both inclusive.

Q.

Consider a concave mirror and a convex lens (refractive index = 1.5) of focal length 10 cm each, separated by a distance of 50 cm in air (refractive index = 1) as shown in the figure. An object is placed at a distance of 15 cm from the mirror. Its erect image formed by this combination has magnification M1. When the set- up is kept in a medium of refractive index 7/6, the magnification becomes M2. The magnitude  is


Solution:

Image by mirror is formed at 30 cm from mirror at its right and finally by the combination it is formed at
20 cm on right of the lens. So in air medium, magnification by lens is unity. In second medium μ =7/6

focal length of the lens is given by 

So in second medium, final image is formed at 140 cm to the right of the lens. Second medium does not change the magnification by mirror. So
