How Do Concave And Convex Lenses Refract Light?

A convex lens converges light rays that travel parallel to its main axis.

The Convex lens is thicker in the middle and thins out as we get closer to the edges.

A Concave lens is one that is thinner in the middle and thickens as we approach closer to the edges.

A concave lens diverges a straight light beam away from the source, creating a smaller, and upright virtual image.

A concave lens can create virtual, diminished  and upright images.

The radius of curvature of a concave refracting surface is greater than zero, i.e. positive.

When an object is kept between the lens and a convex lens, a virtual image is formed.

A refracting surface with a negative radius of curvature is described as a Convex refracting surface.
