Combination of lens

Picsart 03 13 10.04.33


(i) For a system of n-lenses in combination, the net focal length (f), net power (P) and magnification (m) are given as follows:

(ii) In case when two thin lens are in contact: Combination will behave as a lens, which have more power or lesser focal length.

(iii) If two lens of equal focal length but of opposite nature are in contact then combination will behave as a plane glass plate and f = infinity

(iv) If two lenses are placed co-axially at a distance d apart then equivalent focal length (F).

(v) Combination of parts of a lens:
