# Q 9.14 (a) A giant refracting telescope at an observatory has an objective lens of focal length 15m. If an eyepiece of focal length 1.0cm is used, what is the angular magnification of the telescope?

Angular magnification in the telescope is given by :

angular magnification =  $\alpha =$      $\frac{f_{objective} }{f_{eyepiece}}$

Here given,

focal length of objective length = 15m = 1500cm

the focal length of the eyepiece = 1 cm

so, angular magnification, $\alpha =$  $\frac{1500}{1}$

$\alpha = 1500$
