Enter the distance of the object from the lens and the distance the image is formed from the lens to determine the Magnification.

## Magnification Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the magnification produced by a lens.

M = v / u

- Where M is the magnification
- v is the distance the image is formed by the lens
- u is the distance of the object from the lens

## Example

How to calculate magnificiation?

**First, determine the distance of the object from the lens.**Using a measurement device, determine the total distance from the object to the lens.

**Next, determine the distance of the image formed by the lens.**As done in step 1, measure the total distance of the image formed by the lens.

**Finally, calculate the magnification.**Plug in the values from steps 1 and 2 into the formula to calculate the magnification.

## FAQ

**What is magnification?**

Magnification is the process of a lens refracted the image of an object onto a surface where it’s large than the object itself.

**What does a magnification value mean?**

A magnification value of 3, for example, means that the image is 3 times the size of the object.
