Focal Point - Converging Lens
Added by Yenka on Oct 8, 2009
In this model a converging lens focuses light from a parallel light source. This can be used to teach students how the focal length is defined, how it is related to the size of the lens, and how practically to measure it.
This item teaches:
- about the travel of parallel light rays through a converging lens
- about the focal point of a converging lens
- the relationship between the size of a converging lens and its focal length
- about the focal length
- how the focal length is calculated
