In order for a film camera with a fixed focal length F to focus on an object located a distance x from the lens, the film must be placed a distance y behind the lens. F, y, and x are related as follows
Now suppose a camera has a lens with focal length F = 65.
- Explain what happens to the focusing distance y as the object moves far away from the lens.
- Explain what happens to the focusing distance y as the object moves closer and closer to the lens.
- In general, why is it not possible to cross a vertical asymptote?
