Work Step by Step

Examples and pictures shown in this chapter demonstrate that images can be produced by plane mirrors, curved mirrors, and lenses curved on both sides. Figure 23-31ab shows planoconvex lenses and planoconcave lenses that are only curved on one side. The lensmaker’s equation shows that such lenses can bring light rays to a focus or cause parallel rays to diverge, allowing them to create images too.
