It is given that

Focal length f = 15 cm

Distance of image v = – 10 cm

Let us use the formula

1/v – 1/u = 1/f

Substituting the values

1/u = – 1/10 – (-1/15)

1/u = 1/15 – 1/10

So we get

1/u = -0.333

u = -30 cm

The object is placed 30 cm away from the concave lens

A concave lens of focal length 15 cm forms an image 10 cm from the lens

Therefore, the object is placed 30 cm away from the lens.

Summary:

A concave lens of focal length 15 cm forms an image 10 cm from the lens. How far is the object placed from the lens? Draw the ray diagram.

A concave lens of focal length 15 cm forms an image 10 cm from the lens. The object is placed 30 cm away from the lens.
