Q. 9 :- One-half of a convex lens is covered with a black paper. Will this lens produce a complete image of the object? Verify your answer experimentally. Explain your observations. 

 

Answer:-



Yes, the half covered lens will still produce a complete image of the object but the image so formed may not be as intense as formed with uncovered lens. In fact, parts or broken pieces of lens behave like a complete lens and form complete image.
Verification : Take a convex lens. Light a candle. Now form an image of a burning candle on a white surface on the other side of lens by adjusting the distance between lens and candle. We can observe, a complete real and an inverted image of candle. Now cover half of lens with black paper, and try to form an image now. We can observe that again a complete, real and an inverted image of candle is formed. Image formed was less intense from earlier.
