Microscope Calibration and Magnification

Concepts covered:Microscope Calibration, Stage Micrometer, Eyepiece Graticule, Magnification, Conversion of Units

Understanding the calibration process of a stage micrometer and eyepiece graticule in microscopy, where the stage micrometer measures 100 micrometers per division and the eyepiece graticule remains constant regardless of magnification. Exploring the concept of magnification in microscopy, emphasizing the formula m = i/a and the importance of converting measurements to the same units before calculation.

Question 5

How do you use an eyepiece graticule to measure a cell?

Question 6

Why can't you use the stage micrometer to measure cell structures directly?

Question 7

How do you find the value of one eyepiece graticule division?

Question 8

What is the formula for magnification?
