A popular question that many people ask when they’re looking at a microscope is “What is the magnification?” In this post, we’ll answer this question and also explore what microscopes actually do. We will also discuss how to calculate magnification with a simple formula! Magnification is the measure of how much an object appears to be enlarged under a microscope.
It’s measured in degrees and it can range from 0 (no magnification) up to 3600x (when the image looks like it was magnified 100,00 times). So what do you need for this calculation? A ruler or some other way to measure distance -an object that is easy to hold on top of your subject so it’s really close but doesn’t obscure the view at all -the height of whatever you’re viewing with your objective lens This content would go here.
