derivation of lens maker’s formula


Derive a mathematical relation between refractive indices n1 and n2 of two radii and radius of curvature R for refraction at a convex spherical surface. Consider the object to be a point since lying on the principal axis in rarer medium of refractive index n1 and a real image formed in the denser medium of refractive index n2. Hence derive the lens maker’s formula.
