what be the greatest visual magnification ahieved with normal kind microscopes like compound type?
that be 1000x. but how you can determine this for any microscope?
what be the depth of field? and what power be depth of field the smallest?
what power an object be the biggest?
i try helping my sister with this someone please explain everything i check all website and not real understand.
normal limit now is 1500x
How do you determine? Measure something of known scale and compare.
depth of field: Depth of field is independent of magnification, it is related to aperture http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Depth_of_field
What power an object be the biggest? The largest power.
for limit 1500x does it not say on objective lenses? is there no other way to determine?
but wont object be biggest on low power because u be able to see all of it and not only one part of it? cause on question sheet it say what power object be biggest (careful)
If you're looking at a single cell, it will be larger with the higher power.
ok thank you bobpursley and ms. sue :)
You're welcome, Mohammad.
