Mission RL11: Diverging Lenses - Image Characteristics

Mission RL11 focuses on the effect that the object location has upon the characteristics of the images that are produced by converging lenses. The mission consists of 39 questions organized into 9 Question Groups. You must answer one question from each Question Group to complete the mission. The learning outcomes for this mission are ...

Learning Outcomes

  • The student should be able to identify the characteristics of images (size, location, orientation, and type) produced by diverging lenses for a variety of object locations.
  • The student should be able to use an understanding of image characteristics to match a diverging lens image with a given object based n the image size, location and orientation.
