  • Drawing Ray Diagrams
    • Method
    • Draw a horizontal line (axis) and mark out the positions of the lens and the focal point on it.
    • The question will probably tell you the focal length of the lens and the focal point will be this distance away from the centre of the lens.
    • Draw the object the correct distance away from the lens. Make sure it is the correct height.
    • Draw a line from the top of the object, straight through the centre of the lens and out the other side.
    • Light through the centre of the lens is not refracted.
    • Draw a line parallel to the axis until it meets the lens. Now draw a line from that point, through the focal point.
    • Light parallel to the axis is refracted through the focal point.
    • 5. Where your two lines cross is the top of the image. Draw it in!
    1. Draw a ray diagram for showing the image formed when with a lens of focal length f = 3 cm when a 2 cm high object is 8 cm from the lens. 2. Draw a ray diagram for showing the image formed when with a lens of focal length f = 3 cm when a 2 cm high object is 6 cm from the lens.
  • 4. Draw a ray diagram for showing the image formed when with a lens of focal length f = 3 cm when a 2 cm high object is 2 cm from the lens. 3. Draw a ray diagram for showing the image formed when with a lens of focal length f = 3 cm when a 2 cm high object is 5 cm from the lens.
