GENERAL KNOWLEDGE

IF THE LINEAR MAGNIFICATION OF THE OBJECTIVE AND EYEPIECE CONVEX LENSES OF A COMPOUND MICROSCOPE ARE 4 AND 7 RESPECTIVELY. CALCULATE THE ANGULAR MAGNIFICATION OF THE MICROSCOPE

  • A. 2
  • B. 3
  • C. 11
  • D. 28 ✓

 

The answer to the question is: D. 28

The angular magnification of a compound microscope can be calculated using the formula:

Angular Magnification = Magnification of Objective × Magnification of Eyepiece

Given that the magnification of the objective lens (M_o) is 4 and the magnification of the eyepiece (M_e) is 7, we can calculate the angular magnification as follows:

Angular Magnification = 4 × 7 = 28

Therefore, the angular magnification of the microscope is 28.
