Question 7: Fill in the following blanks with suitable words :
 (a) A convex lens……. rays of light, whereas a concave lens……….. rays of light.
 (b) Lenses refract light to form images : a……… lens can form both real and virtual images, but a diverging
 lens forms only……….. images.

Solution : (a) converges; diverges
(b) converging; virtual

Question 8: Things always look small on viewing through a lens. What is the nature of the lens ?

Solution : Concave lens.

Question 9: An object lies at a distance of 2ƒ from a concave lens of focal length ƒ. Draw a ray-diagram to illustrate the image formation.

Question 11: Give the position, size and nature of image formed by a concave lens when the object is placed :
 (a) anywhere between optical centre and infinity.
 (b) at infinity.

Solution : (a) When the object is placed anywhere between optical centre and infinity, the image is formed between optical centre and focus. It is diminished, virtual and erect.
(b) When the object is placed at infinity, the image is formed at focus. It is highly diminished, virtual and erect.

Question 12: Which type of lens is : (a) a converging lens, and which is (b) a diverging lens ? Explain your answer with diagrams.

Solution : (a) A convex lens is a converging lens because it converges a parallel beam of light rays passing through it at its focus.

Figure — A convex lens converges (brings closer) a parallel beam of light rays to a point F on its other side (right side).

(b) A concave lens is a diverging lens because it diverges the parallel beam of rays passing through it.

Solutions of Refraction of Light (Page No- 252) - Physics By Lakhmir Singh, Class 10 Class 10 Notes | EduRev

Figure — A concave lens diverge  (spreads out) a parallel beam of light rays.

Question 13: With the help of a diagram, explain why the image of an object viewed through a concave lens appears smaller and closer than the object.

Solution : (a) Smaller.
(b) Bigger.
Image is virtual in both the cases.

Solutions of Refraction of Light (Page No- 252) - Physics By Lakhmir Singh, Class 10 Class 10 Notes | EduRev

As shown by the diagram, the image of an object viewed through a concave lens appears smaller and closer than the object.

Question 14: How would a pencil look like if you saw it through (a) a concave lens, and (b) a convex lens ? (Assume the pencil is close to the lens). Is the image real or virtual ?

Question 15: (a) An object is placed 10 cm from a lens of focal length 5 cm. Draw the ray diagrams to show the formation
 of image if the lens is (i) converging, and (ii) diverging.
 (b) State one practical use each of convex mirror, concave mirror, convex lens and concave lens.
