a) Based on the graph in Figure 2,



(i) state the relationship between uv and u + v



…………………………………………………………………………………………

(ii) determine the value of u + v when the value of uv = 400 cm

. Show on the graph how

you obtained the value of u + v.



40 cm

From the value of u + v obtained, calculate the image distance, v when u = 20 cm.



20 + v = 40

v = 20 cm

(iii) calculate the gradient of the graph. Show clearly on the graph how you obtained the

values needed for the calculation.



Gradient = 400/40

= 10 cm

[3 marks]



b) Given that the relationship between u, v and focal length, f of the convex lens used, is
represented by the equation

1 + 1 = 1

u v f

Derive an equation which gives the relationship between uv and (u + v ).

c) Using the equation derived in (b), and the value of gradient calculated in (a)(iii), determine the
focal length of the lens used in the experiment.



The gradient = f

Therefore f = 10 cm

[2 marks]



d) State one precaution taken to ensure the accuracy of the experiment.


………………………………………………………………………………………[1 mark]



uv is directly proportional to (u + v)

The object (lamp), lens and the screen must be arranged in a straight line

perpendicular to the screen
