What will happen to the image?

image The thin lens forms a real image of the candle (the flame) on the screen. What will happen to the image if you cover half of the lens?

Solution. Posted on Saturday, November 8, 2014.

The amount of light passing through the lens is less when we are covering half of the lens. The lens is able to create the image, but the image is dim.

  1. I’m sort of guessing because I tried this with a magnifying glass. The image will not be as clear because the amount of light getting through the lens is less. The whole image will be there because light from all parts of the image can still go through the lens and will still show the same image, but not as bright.
