# What is the total magnification of a compound light microscope?

## What is the total magnification of a compound light microscope?

To calculate the total magnification of the compound light microscope multiply the magnification power of the ocular lens by the power of the objective lens. For instance, a 10x ocular and a 40x objective would have a 400x total magnification. The highest total magnification for a compound light microscope is 1000x.

## What is the total magnification at 40x?

Magnification Total Magnification
Scanning 4x 40x
Low Power 10x 100x
High Power 40x 400x
Oil Immersion 100x 1000x

## What is the safest way to carry a microscope quizlet?

Terms in this set (12)

• carry the microscope with two hands, holding the arm and base.
• put the microscope on the lab table so the arm is facing you.
• plug the microscope in and turn on the light.
• turn the nose piece until the low power objective is into place.

## What is the function of arm in compound microscope?

Arm connects to the base and supports the microscope head. It is also used to carry the microscope.

## What is the magnification of eyepiece?

The standard eyepiece magnifies 10x. Check the objective lens of the microscope to determine the magnification, which is usually printed on the casing of the objective.

## What is the function of a mirror?

Mirrors reverse the direction of the image in an equal yet opposite angle from which the light shines upon it. This allows the viewer to see themselves or objects behind them, or even objects that are at an angle from them but out of their field of view, such as around a corner.

## What are some examples of plane mirrors?

A plane mirror is a flat mirror that reflects light and produces a virtual image without the interference of an inward or outward curve. Plane mirrors, which include the common bathroom and hallway mirrors used daily, produce a virtual image at the same magnification and distance as the object they reflect.

## Are glasses concave or convex?

Eyeglass lenses will almost always be convex on the outer surface, the one farthest from the eye, simply to fit it to the curvature of the face. If the inner surface is concave, and more sharply curved than the outer, then the lens is diverging.

## What is convex mirror class 10th?

Convex Mirror is a curved mirror where the reflective surface bulges out towards the light source. This bulging out surface reflect light outwards and are not used to focus light. Both the center of curvature and the focal point are located on the side of the mirror opposite the object.
