 Question [CLICK ON ANY CHOICE TO KNOW THE RIGHT ANSWER]
What is the total magnification if the ocular lense was 55 and the objective lense was 100?
 A 550 B 5500 C 0055 D 5050
Explanation:

Detailed explanation-1: -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.

Detailed explanation-2: -Therefore, we multiply the ocular objective lens magnification (10x) with the high power objective lens (50x); hence, the total magnification equals 500x.

Detailed explanation-3: -Low Power Objective (10x) The total magnification of a low power objective lens combined with a 10x eyepiece lens is 100x magnification, giving you a closer view of the slide than a scanning objective lens without getting too close for general viewing purposes.

Detailed explanation-4: -Simply multiply the magnification of the eyepiece by the magnification of the objective lens. The magnification of both microscope eyepieces and objectives is almost always engraved on the barrel (objective) or top (eyepiece). Look for numbers like 10x, 12.5x, etc.
