# A student focuses the image of a candle name, placed at about 2 from a convex lens of focal length 10 cm, on a screen. After that he gradually moves the flame towards the lens and each time focuses its image on the screen. (a) In which direction does he move the lens to focus the flame on the screen? (b) What happens to the size of the image of the flame formed on the screen? (c) What difference is seen in the intensity (brightness) of the image of the flame on the screen? (d) What is seen on the screen when the flame is very close (at about 5 cm) to the lens?

Dear Student ,

(a)As the candle is moved towards the lens, the image distance increases. Thus, the student moves the lens away from the screen to focus the image. (b)The size of the image increases when the object is moved towards the lens. (c) Intensity decreases. (d)When the candle is moved very close to the lens, no image is formed on the screen. A virtual image is formed behind the candle on the same side of the screen.
Regards
