Single All we know is refraction law 𝑛1 𝑠𝑖𝑛𝜃1 = 𝑛2 𝑠𝑖𝑛𝜃2
To find image position q, we need to use the angle
Surface 𝛼, 𝛽, 𝛾 instead 𝜃1 , 𝜃2

By applying a very small angle, we can approximate that 𝑠𝑖𝑛𝜃 ≈ 𝜃 ≈ 𝑡𝑎𝑛𝜃

After 3 time approximation, we can prove that

An equation for single surface
If object is the same side as the incident ray, then p is plus, otherwise minus.
If image is the opposite side to the incident ray, then q is plus otherwise minus

Observer 1

Observer 2

Observer 1 see only object at the point O where as observer 2 see only object at the point I
No one can see object at point O and I at the same time according to the light ray come to individual
Observer. Observer 1 can’t see object at point I because light ray from point I can’t reach observer 1.

If the image occur after the 2𝑛𝑑 𝑠𝑢𝑟𝑓𝑎𝑐𝑒,

the calculation will be apply for just

Apparent Angular ℎ0
Magnification Magnification

Apparent Magnification increases apparent size of the object

by mirror, lens. The equation is
ℎ′ 𝑞 ℎ𝐼
𝑀= =− ℎ0
ℎ 𝑝
How ever there are situation that we can see image larger
even though it’s high is less than the object. When you place
a smaller object near to you, it seem larger than a far away Object is at 25 cm with high ℎ, but when
big object. This is called angular magnification We see the object through lens the image
𝜃 ℎ𝐼 (same high) near to you with distant p. Hence
𝑚= =

If there is lens with focus length 𝑓1 , 𝑓2 , … . 𝑓𝑛 in the lens system, each one has magnification 𝑀1 , 𝑀2 , … 𝑀𝑛

Telescope m= 𝜃

Light from the star is a parallel ray hence the image of star is
formed at focus of objective lens. If you move your eyes to the
image, larger image you would see. However your eyes is so
tire when see very near image or object, so an eyepiece lens is
used to make your eyes more compatible to see the image by
making the ray of the image become a parallel ray like you are
seeing very far object.
