This interactive Flash application allows users to investigate the properties of converging lenses. The index of refraction and the radius of curvature of the lens can be changed and thelens and object can be moved in two dimensions. This is part of a large collection of simulations freely available from the University of Colorado.
Please note that this resource requires Flash.
