Reading glasses use converging lenses. A simple magnifier is also a converging lens. Are reading glasses therefore magnifiers? Discuss the similarities and differences between converging lenses as used for these two different purposes.
Step 1 of 1 </p>
The differences between a magnifier and the reading glasses are:
(1) Both the magnifiers as well as the reading glasses are made of converging lenses.
(2) In a magnifier, a virtual image of the object is formed when the object is placed at the focal point whereas in the case of reading glasses the rays of light are made to converge...
