It is a lens that possesses at least one surface that curves outwards. It causes light to deviate inward, bringing the rays of light to a focus. Its thicker at its center than at its edges, and is used to correct far-sightedness.

A convex lens is a lens that bulges outward on both sides.

I have another comment. It does do all that stuff and who needed them to build a telescope? It's Galileo Galilie. Ohyah!

The convex lens are the converging lens. The periphery of the convex lens is thinner & the center part is thicker. In other words, the convex lens are bulging at the center & thinner at the periphery.

when a beam of light is passed through the convex lens it converges the beam of ligth.hence convex lens is called a converging lens.

The convex lens bulges out at the center, while the concave lens bulges in at the center. The convex lens magnifies, while the concave lens reduces.

A convex lens is a lens that converges light into a smaller area.

A convex lens is also known as a converging lens

A convex lens is curved outward on both sides. Also, a convex lens, is used to enlarge objects.

A convex lens forms a real image.

Convex lens curve outwards.

A convex lens is a converging lens. When parallel rays of light pass through a convex lens the refracted rays converge at one point called the principal focus.

Convex lens are plus lenses, while concave lens are minus lenseses.

Concave lens caves in )( like that and Convex lens bulges out () like that

The other end of the lens housed a convex lens.

Yes. Because convex lens produce real image.. so Fish eye has convex lens

A convex lens is thicker in the center than at the edges. A convex lens is like a concave mirror.A concave lens is thinner in the center than at the edges.

A convex lens is wider at the edges than it is in the center. Therefore, it is a converging lens.

When light rays pass through a convex lens, they converge at the focal point of the convex lens.

Concave and convex lens are alike because they both manipulate light.

A converging lens is also known as a magnifying lens. The shape of the lens is a double convex shape.

The top of the convex lens is thicker than the bottom.

name of a transparent and convex shaped lens

A convex lens converges the light rays.
