(b) If the bug is 5.00 cm from the lens, what is the focal length of the lens? Show that for thin lenses that have focal lengths f1 and f2 and are in contact, the effective focal length (f) is given by A biconvex lens is made of glass whose index of refraction is 1.6. The lens has a radius of curvature of 30 cm for one surface and 40 cm for the other. Calculate the focal length of this lens as used in air and under water.
