If a lens is cut in half through a plane perpendicular to its surface, does it show only half an image?
Step 1 of 1
Here we need to explain whether the lens which is cut in half through the plane perpendicular to its surface, will show half an image.
No, the lens will show the same full image because when we cut the lens through the plane which is perpendicular to its surface, the focal length of the lens will remain same which results in unchanged image in case of half lens.
