focal lengths and principal planes


focal lengths of a spherical refracting surface ( free )


Caution
Fill in all input cells.
Choose all parameters unit.
n0 and n1 can be either values or references of glasses from the catalog. If values are directly entered, the wavelength will not be considered.
focal lengths and radius of curvature are algebric.
Positive direction is according the horizontal arrow in the bottom right of the scheme.
