Answer:0.37 cm

Explanation:The image is formed on the retina which is at a constant distance of 2.70 cm to the lens. Therefore, image distance = 2.70 cm.

The object is at a distant of 265 cm to the lens of the eye.

From lens formula,

= +

where: f is the focal length, u is the object distance and v is the image distance.

Thus, u = 265.00 cm and v = 2.70 cm.

= +

=

=

⇒ f =

= 0.37

The focal length of the eye is 0.37 cm.
