2. Uses of the concave mirror and the convex mirror in our daily life A convex lens is used in paper burning glass. Cameras. These lenses are actually made by the use of transparent plastic or glass. In this brief, we are going to list some of the most common applications of convex lenses. 2) Convex lens is used as a camera lens in cameras as they focus light for a clean picture. The uses of lenses to treat the vision defects. Magnifying glass. A convex lens is relatively thick at the middle and thin at the upper and lower edges. The word ‘magnify’ means to make something look bigger or larger than it actually is. The lens has two centers of curvature and it has two foci because it has two circular surfaces. Objects placed at distances beyond 2 f would form clear images on the screen inside the cameras. A convex lens is also called a magnifying glass. Uses of convex lens are in daily life are as follows : 1) Convex lens is used in microscopes and magnifying glasses to subject all the light to a specific point. A convex lens is a lens that is thinner at the edges and at the same time thicker at the center. A convex lens is used in the palm reading lens. The same lens can be used for transmitting and focusing lights. Properties of the formed images by convex lens and concave lens. The edges of the rays curved outward rather than inward. In this article, you will learn about the convex lens and uses of convex lens. The properties of the image formed by a plane mirror. A convex lens is a lens that converges ray of light. 3) Convex lens is used in the correction of hypermetropia. A concave lens contains at least one inwardly-curved surface, and it is also referred to as a divergent lens. It is used to read the very small print of a book conveniently. Convex lenses are used for focusing light rays to make items appear larger and clearer, such as with magnifying glasses. 1.
