    Hello, I am trying to design something which needs to transfer as light as efficiently as possible from a 1W RGB LED, down 2 metres of a clear acrylic plastic rod/tube (used as an "optical fibre"), to a diffuser at the far end. The idea is is that total internal reflection will cause the light...

    Lenses system

    I am having some trouble understanding a question involving a lens system, which is as follows: A 20cm tall object is placed 80cm in front of a -6.75D lens. A second lens of power +3.00D is placed 7.5cm behind the first lens. The lens system is aligned so that the lenses are co-axial...

    Two Converging Lenses

    A compound microscope consists of two converging lenses. Lens 1, called the objective, is a distance 61.0 mm from lens 2, called the eyepiece. The objective is placed in between the object and the eyepiece. The objective has a focal length of 15.0 mm, and the eyepiece has a focal length of 25.5...

    combining lenses

    I worked this problem and found some strange answers: 2 thin lenses separated by 10cm. First has a focal length of 20cm, the second has a focal length of 30cm. Here are my answers: Where H denotes the principle planes and O denotes the lenses. So here's the problem, recall that the lenses...
