Given the distance from the object to the lens (U) and the focal distance (F), the program calculates object from the image from the lens (V) and magnification (M) of the image by the following equations:

V = 1 / (1/F - 1/U)

M = -V / U

To run: enter U (object distance) then F (focal distance). Then run label C ([ f ] [10^x] (C)). The first result is V (image distance). Press [R/S] to get M (magnification).

Example 1:

Input: U = 0.24 ft, F = 0.16 ft

Output: V = 0.4800 ft (R/S) M = -2.0000

Example 2:

Input: U = 1.5 ft, F = 0.8 ft

Output: V ≈ 1.7143 ft, M ≈ -1.1429

V = 1 / (1/F - 1/U)

M = -V / U
