 Question [CLICK ON ANY CHOICE TO KNOW THE RIGHT ANSWER]
A microscope has an eye piece magnification of 10 and a high power objective magnification of 50. What is the highest total magnification of the microscope?
 A 500x B 400x C 50x D 40x
Explanation:

Detailed explanation-1: -In this case, the total magnification of a microscope is equal to the magnification of the objective ocular lens multiplied by the high-power objective lens. Therefore, we multiply the ocular objective lens magnification (10x) with the high power objective lens (50x); hence, the total magnification equals 500x.

Detailed explanation-2: -The total magnification is the product of the magnifications of two lens systems. Hence, the microscope which has a 10X objective lens and 10X ocular lens, it would magnify the object by 10 × 10 = 100 times.

Detailed explanation-3: -High Power Objective Lens (40x) The total magnification of a high-power objective lens combined with a 10x eyepiece is equal to 400x magnification, giving you a very detailed picture of the specimen in your slide.

Detailed explanation-4: -To get the total magnification level you must multiply the magnification of the ocular lens by the magnification of the objective lens. So, if you are viewing your slide under the 40x objective lens you would multiply that by the 10x of the ocular lens for a total magnification of 400x.

Detailed explanation-5: -Answer and Explanation: The total magnification is the magnification of the ocular lens (10) multiplied by the objective lens (100). If we multiply 100 x 10 = 1, 000. This is noted as the total magnification is 1000x, or 1000 times the size of the specimen.
