Object is placed at distance 2 f from the lens. So first image I_{1 }will be formed at distance 2 f on other side. This image I_{1} will behave like a virtual object for mirror.

When liquid medicine of density ρ is to be put in the eye, it is done with the help of a dropper. As the bulb on the top of the dropper is pressed, a drop forms at the opening of the dropper. We wish to estimate the size of the drop.
