Abstract

An interesting optical experiment may be performed with a camera and converging lens. An extension of the experiment by use of the eye in place of the camera makes possible high magnifications with a single lens, location of flaws in glass, observation and location of particles within one’s own eye and observation of Fresnel diffraction effects.
