# What is the power in diopters of a camera lens that has a 50.0 mm focal length?

## What is the power in diopters of a camera lens?

The lens power or diopter is defined as follows: That is, dividing 1000 by the focal length (in mm) of a lens yields the diopter of that lens. For example, a lens of 50mm has a diopter of 1000/50 = 20, and a lens of 8.9mm has a diopter of 1000/8.9 = 112.4.

## What is the power of a lens that has a focal length of?

The power of a lens is defined as the reciprocal of its focal length in meters, or D = 1/f, where D is the power in diopters and f is the focal length in meters. Lens surface power can be found with the index of refraction and radius of curvature.

## What is the relation between focal length and power of a lens?

If a lens has a shorter focal length it is said to be more powerful. The power of a lens is defined as the reciprocal of the focal length.

## What is the power of a lens with a focal length of 25 Metres?

P = + 4 D. Since it is a positive focal length, the lens will be a convex lens or a converging lens and the power is written as ‘+’.

## Which Lens has more power?

A thick convex lens has more power than a thin one because it has greater curvature or lesser focal length than a thin lens.

## What is the relation between refractive index and focal length?

Since from lens makers formula we can observe that focal length of lens is inversely proportional to refractive index of medium of lens . Hence net refractive index of lens decreases when it is dipped in a denser medium than air, hence focal length increases.

## How do you convert power to focal length?

For example, suppose an object is at 1/2 meter. Converted to centimeters, the object is 50 cm away. Divide 100 by 50 and the result is 2 D of power needed to focus at this distance. The formula to remember is D = 100/F, where D is diopters and F is the focal length (or distance) in centimeters.

## What is the mirror formula?

The mirror equation expresses the quantitative relationship between the object distance (do), the image distance (di), and the focal length (f).

## What is the power of a convex lens whose focal length is 50 cm?

Power of a lens is always reciprocal to the focal length. So, aconvex lens with 50cm focal length has a power of (1/0.5) Dioptre(D) or 2D.

## What is the power of lens of focal length 20cm?

similarly the power of a concave lens of focal length 20 cm is 5.0 dioptre. Power of combination of lenses : The focal length of the combination of two lenses placed in contact is given by the relation. Thus the power of combination of lenses is the algebraic sum of the powers of individual lenses.
