Welcome to our Physics lesson on Magnification Produced by Lenses, this is the sixth lesson of our suite of physics lessons covering the topic of Lenses. Equation of Lenses. Image Formation of Lenses, you can find links to the other lessons within this tutorial and access additional physics learning resources below this lesson.
The most important feature of lenses (for which they are produced) is the magnification they provide. The approach is the same as magnification in curved mirrors. This means we can use two formulae for the calculation of magnification:
where h stands for height, and
For example, if we take the height of the object in the previous example equal to 3 cm, we can work out the image's height by combining the two formulae of magnification:
Substituting the known values, we obtain for the image's height:
