Explain working of a compound microscope.
A compound microscope has multiple lenses: the objective lens (typically 4x, 10x, 40x, or 100x) is compounded (multiplied) by the eyepiece lens (typically 10x) to obtain a high magnification of 40x, 100x, 400x, and 1000x. Higher magnification is achieved by using two lenses rather than just a single magnifying lens. Its magnification formula is M_{∞} = V_{0}D / U_{0}f_{e}.
How to Calculate Magnifying Power of Compound Microscope at Infinity?
Magnifying Power of Compound Microscope at Infinity calculator uses Magnifying Power = (Distance between Two Lens*Least Distance of Distinct Vision)/(Object Distance*Focal Length of Eyepiece) to calculate the Magnifying Power, The Magnifying Power of Compound Microscope at Infinity is defined as the angle subtending at the eye by the image to the angle subtended by the object. Magnifying Power is denoted by M symbol.
How to calculate Magnifying Power of Compound Microscope at Infinity using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Magnifying Power of Compound Microscope at Infinity, enter Distance between Two Lens (V_{0}), Least Distance of Distinct Vision (D), Object Distance (U_{0}) & Focal Length of Eyepiece (f_{e}) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Magnifying Power of Compound Microscope at Infinity calculation can be explained with given input values -> 2.5 = (0.05*0.25)/(0.125*0.04).
