Light from a point source in the air falls on a convex spherical glass surface (n = 1.5 and radius of curvature = 20 cm) of a glass medium which extends till infinity on other side . The distance of the light source from the glass surface is 100 cm. At what position the image is formed?
1. at a distance of 200 cm from the glass surface, in the direction of incident light.
2. at a distance of 100 cm from the glass surface, in the direction of incident light.
3. at a distance of 200 cm from the glass surface, in the opposite direction of incident light.
4. at a distance of 100 cm from the glass surface, in the opposite direction of incident light.
