The minimum distance between an object and its real image formed by a convex lens is:

 Suppose I be the real image of an object at O. Let d represent the distance between them. If the image is x distance from the lens’s centre, then the distance between the object and the lens’s centre is (dx).

As we know, sign convention for convex lenses.

Thus, u=−(d−x) and v=+x

1/f = 1/x − 1/−(d−x)

⇒ 1/f = 1/x + 1/(d−x)

⇒ x− xd − fd = 0

For a real image, the value of x must be a real number, for roots of equation will be real

when, d⩾ 4fd

d⩾4f

Hence, from the above equation we get the minimum distance between an object and its real image formed by a convex lens is

d=4f .
