Equation for thin lens: \frac{1}{p}+\frac{1}{q}=\frac{1}{f} where p is the distance between object and lens, q is the distance between image and lens, and f is the focus length of lens.
blue linestrace of light path
green linesbackward tracing for virtual image
small red linesdistances f and 2*f away from the center of lens.
1st textfieldcurrent mouse position (x , y) relative to lens
white vertical linereference line (you can click and drag it left/right)
yellow linelight path for paraxial ray assumption(mirror only)


Parameters can be changed :
  1. Select Lens for thin lens effect(default)

  2. select mirror for concave/convex mirror effect

  3. default: assume paraxial ray (you can turn it off)

  4. press toggle button +/- to change between converging/diverginglens

  5. Move the object

  6. click near tip of the object, and drag it to where you like it and release the mouse button.

  7. Move the lens/mirror:

  8. click near center of the lens, and drag it to left or right.

    if click with left mouse button, only lens will move.

    if click with right mouse button, object will move with lens.

  9. Change the focus length of the lens/mirror

  10. click near the top/bottom of the lens/mirrir, then drag the mouse . Try it!

  11. if you adjust the size of window, parameters reset to default values.

  12. you can open more then one window to compare different cases, close the created window to Quit. Pressto open another Lens window!

  13. you can change the following parameters inside the "textfield".
    Parametersdistancedefaults
    Pobject20.
    qimage20.

I think this page is great.
I stumbled into it one night while trying to find some insight on a physics assignment that I had.
I've used it ever since to check my work.
Something that might be helpful to a great number of people
would be a java applet with thick lenses and or two lense systems. Just a thought.
Thank you for taking the time to publish such a page John Eagle

Mr. Hwang, I want to say that your virtual lab was unbelievably helpful to me.
I attend the university of wisconsin-madison and I was having problems with optics concepts.
I went under the internet and searched under lens and mirrors and fell upon your lab.
I am very grateful. I was a little upset last night when I wanted to access the lens mirror applet,
because I couldn't find it.
I guess even the virtual labs have hours of availability.
I guess that's my only suggestion,
which isn't a very necessary one to attend to when most of us can access it during the day.
Thanks again, Chris cechapma@students.wisc.edu

I just figured out that the inverted image is not virtual but real,
so everything makes sense now.
Keep up the good work.

I love your thin lens page: http://www.phy.nau.edu/~layton/JavaApps/thinlens/lens_e.htm
What a great use of Java!
I use Netscape, by the way, and the applet worked just fine and was very speedy.
I've been trying to figure out why a glass rod creates an inverted (about one axis) virtual image.
Do you have an applet for a thick lens, or just a ray diagram that would show this effect?
Is the thinlens.java code still available? The link was not working when I tried.
It would be interesting to develop something like this for seismic waves.
I'm a seismologist now, but my first love is physics,
which was my undergraduate major at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
Thanks again for providing the world this great applet.

Hi

I was looking at your applet for the thin lens and really liked it. I am new to applets and
often it is possible to download them so that you can use them off line but I couldn't
work out what to do to download your applet.

I am a secondary teacher and would really like to show it to my students. Would I be
able to get a copy of it please.

Thanks

Subject: Great applet!

I just discovered your lens applet. It is a great tool for
helping students come to understand lenses and mirrors.

Unless you object, I would like to assign a problem to my
students based on this applet.

I have few stupid questions...

I see mainly converging lenses collecting rays to one poit (pix A) but do they work another direction? (pix B) any differet solutions/ something usefull to know? I know I could use image conduit but they don't have enought resolution for 2000-3000 pixel CCD-bar/21mm wide...or I'm wrong? :?: In pictures arrow shows direction of ray.



Another Q is about focusing. Is there difference in working of D ja C assebly pictures? Are they equal?

Students won't be alfraid of physics with the help of these java applets. All physics teachers must use java applets. These are very useful Thanks for sending us for free. Tongue

Yes. The path of light ray is reversable. If those parallel light really focus on one single point. You can place a light source at that point can create a parallel light output.

I am not able to download the applet for offline use. When I press the "Get applets for offline use" button, I get a "no privilege" message in the next page.
Please help.

When I check it with my browser with two different account.
It works fines with my netscape and IE browser.
Could you tell me what is your browser and the verson #?
We have many downloads per days without such problems.

This applet was created with JDK1.0.2.
It should works for most of the browser.
You need to open lens_e.html with your browser.

If it still did not work. I need the error message from java console.

Professor Hwang,

This app is great. I would like to build off of your code to do a mirror simulation focused on some different ideas, but I don't can't get the app to open in the EJS interface so I can work on it. Is there a way to do this?

Thanks,

Applets under physics simulation category are created many years ago with JDK 1.0.2

Only those applets under "Easy Java SImulation" category are created with ejs.
And you can view how it was created.

I am going to change the code and the server structure so that user can also edit ejs code and save the modified simulation on our server . (user also can get modified ejs code and all related files in ZIP format).
