Description

Concave lens

A concave lens is a lens that diverges a straight light beam from the source to a diminished, upright, virtual image. It can form both real and virtual images. Concave lenses have at least one surface curved inside.

Rules for drawing ray diagrams in concave lens

A ray of light from the object, parallel to the principal axis, after refraction from a concave lens, the ray appears to diverge from the principal focus located on the same side of the lens.

A ray of light appearing to meet at the principal focus of a concave lens, after refraction, will emerge parallel to the principal axis.

A ray of light passing through the optical centre of a lens will emerge without any deviation.

The ray diagrams represent the image formation in a concave lens for various positions of the object.
