  1. Use a ray diagram to locate the image formed: A 1 cm high object is located 6 cm in front of a concave lens having a 10 cm focal length.
  2. Use a ray diagram to locate the image formed: A 4 cm high object is located 10 cm in front of a concave lens having a 16 cm focal length.
  3. Use a ray diagram to locate the image formed: A 3 cm object is located 9 cm in front of a convex lens having a 6 cm focal length.
  4. Use a ray diagram to locate the image formed: A 2 cm object is located 4 cm in front of a convex lens having an 8 cm focal length.
  5. Use a ray diagram to locate the image formed: A 0.6 cm object is located 1 cm in front of a magnifying glass having a 2 cm focal length.

Mathematically determine the image distance, the image height, and the magnification ratio. Describe the image formed, relating image and object distance, image and object height, and type of image, and image orientation.
