After reading the chapter on convex lens, I saw several places where "converge" is used.
In the very beginning of the chapter, my book says "converging lenses bring light together". So I thought converging means gathering, sorta.
Then I saw the section explaining what happen when light rays come off an object placed "infinitely far" from a convex lens (100m counts as " infinitely far). It basically says in that case, light rays will pretty much all reach the lens parallel to one another, and they converge at the focal point on the far side/ the other side of the lens, creating an image.
I know image is created when light rays intersect. So I think converge in some sense means intersect and produce image.
Scientifically, I am not sure if my book is even correct, all the light rays coming off an object parallel to each other, there can't be any intersection. And yet my book says that an image is produced at f.
update I forgot to mention the third place where the word is mentioned. There, my book simply says "light parallel to the optical axis converges on the far focal point", without saying that any image is produced.
