Myopia Glasses and Optical Power Estimation: An Easy Experiment
Ribeiro, Jair LĂșcio Prados
Physics Teacher, v53 n2 p101-102 Feb 2015
Human eye optics is a common high school physics topic and students usually show a great interest during our presentation of this theme. In this article, we present an easy way to estimate a diverging lens' optical power from a simple experiment involving myopia eyeglasses and a smartphone flashlight.
