A person with a near-point distance of 32 cm is able to get a usable angular magnification of 12 with a particular magnifying glass. Her friend is only able to get a usable angular magnification of 7. What is the friend’s near-point distance?

we know that, the Angular magnification of the eyepiece

m = n/f where n is the near point and f is the focal length

f =n/m = 32/12 =2.66666667

again from the same formula we have, n = f x m for the friend, n2 = f x m2

=  2.66666667*7 =  18.6666667 cm

the friend’s near-point distance = 18.6666667 cm answer

This is a two part question. Part 1. To look closely at a small object, such as an insect or a crystal, you bring it close to your eye, making the subtended angle and the retinal image as large as possible. But your eye cannot focus sharply on objects that are closer than the near point, so the angular size of an object is greatest when it is placed at the near point (25 cm away from a “normal” eye)....
