Combination of Lens

Category : JEE Main & Advanced

(1) For a system of lenses, the net power, net focal length and magnification are given as follows :

$P={{P}_{1}}+{{P}_{2}}+{{P}_{3}}..........$,      $\frac{1}{F}=\frac{1}{{{f}_{1}}}+\frac{1}{{{f}_{2}}}+\frac{1}{{{f}_{3}}}+...........$,

$m={{m}_{1}}\times {{m}_{2}}\times {{m}_{3}}\times \,............$

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

$\frac{1}{F}=\frac{1}{{{f}_{1}}}+\frac{1}{{{f}_{2}}}$$\Rightarrow$$F=\frac{{{f}_{1}}{{f}_{2}}}{{{f}_{1}}+{{f}_{2}}}$     and   $P={{P}_{1}}+{{P}_{2}}$

(3) If two lens of equal focal length but of opposite nature are in contact then combination will behave as a plane glass plate and ${{F}_{\text{combination}}}=\infty$

(4) When two lenses are placed co-axially at a distance d from each other then equivalent focal length (F). $\frac{1}{F}=\frac{1}{{{f}_{1}}}+\frac{1}{{{f}_{2}}}-\frac{d}{{{f}_{1}}{{f}_{2}}}$ and $P={{P}_{1}}+{{P}_{2}}-d{{P}_{1}}{{P}_{2}}$
