Lesson: Microscopes Science
In this lesson, we will learn how to identify the parts of a microscope, calculate total magnification, and describe how a specimen can be prepared and viewed using a microscope.
A student drew an animal cell they had observed under the microscope. The diameter of the cell they drew was 100 mm, but the actual size of the cell was 0.01 mm.
How many times larger was the drawing than the actual cell?
Why is a microscope slide made of glass?
When observing a specimen under a microscope, what step should be done first?
