How did the Compound Microscope change life as people know it?
the compound light microscope provided people the ability to see objects too small to see with the naked eye. It also enabled microscopes to magnify at different rates, usually 100x, 400x and 500x.

The term compound microscope normally refers to a light microscopethat uses two or more lenses to magnify objects. (Two lenses doesnot refer to the number of eye pieces as does the term binocularmicroscope.) This is to be distinguished from a simple lightmicroscope with a single lens. There are man…y modern variations of the light microscope which havemore specialized names but which may still be "compound" with themeaning that they have multiple stages of magnification. (MORE)

When using a light microscope you encounter d iffraction . (Visible light behaves like a wave, with a wavelength of about 300 to 900 nanometres). We say that light diffracts when its wavelike behaviour makes it bend around obstacles, or spread out. If the obstacle is much larger than the waveleng…th of the incoming wave, the spreading-out will be smaller. If the gap is smaller than the wavelength, then the spreading-out will be very large.. In a light microscope, the light waves will spread out whenever they pass through a lens, or any sort of obstruction. The primary lens in most microscopes is of much bigger than 300-900 nanometres, so the angle by which light waves diverge is really quite small. However, it is not zero the light waves do spread out a little bit, and the result is that the visual field is always a bit blurry. It is impossible for an ordinary light microscope to avoid this problem, so they can never see structures smaller than about 500 nm. (MORE)
The difference lies in the number of lenses that each microscope has. A compound microscope has 2 or more lenses, like those found in most science classrooms. A simple microscope uses only 1 lens.
Compound microscope - a microscope which uses multiple lenses to collect light from the sample, and then a separate set of lenses to focus the light into the eye or camera. It shines a light from beneath the stage, going up through the object being examined. Stereo microscope - a microscope de…signed for low magnification observation of an opaque object. It shines a light onto the object, rather than shining it up through the object. It uses two separate optical paths with two objectives and two eyepieces to provide slightly different viewing angles to the left and right eyes. This produces a three-dimensional visualization of the object. (MORE)
Some say they know that life began by an act of creation in the recent past. While it is unfair to say that they only 'pretend' to know this, it is a belief largely based on faith. . Others believe that the evidence shows that life began many millions of years ago, in early pre-Cambrian times, when… the Earth was hot and volcanic. Scientists tell us that life slowly evolved by natural selection to the point we have now. Once again, it would be unfair to say that evolutionists 'pretend' to know this, because there is so much overwhelming evidence in support of evolution..

a simple microscope only have one lens but a compound microscope have two or more lens
The compound microscope is called compound because the modifier compound means "two or more." A compound microscope has two or more lenses lenses. This is to be distinguished from a simple microscope which has one lens. Such a microscope is structurally equivalent to a magnifying glass, though no…t necessarily a hand held lens. (MORE)

Without the microscope we wouldn't know as much about cells as we do now with microscopes and we probably would be more prone to sickness considering that sickness has to do with cells fighting against virus' and the cure is hidden with the factors of the cell.
Yes - they differ in the number of lens that they use. They are both forms of light microscopes, but a simple microscope uses one lens, and a compound microscope uses multiple lens. Compound microscopes are usually larger, heavier and more expensive.
From the 1st AD when microscopes where looking through a glass with water in it to 8 ton Machines microscopes have changed heaps.

The first electronic spreadsheet was VisiCalc, invented in 1978 and launched in 1979, which was a major step up from paper-based ones. For the inventors of VisiCalc, Dan Bricklin and Bob Frankston, it helped make them wealthy. For others it simplified the processes of doing calculations on computers…. Such was the popularity of VisiCalc and other early electronic spreadsheet applications when they came out and well into the 1980s, people bought computers specifically to use spreadsheets, much like people now buy computers to access the internet. Businesses made huge use of them and still do. Anyone involved with a lot of numbers, such as accountants, statisticians and many others, can use them for all sorts of purposes and it has made their work a lot easier and made them more productive. Even ordinary people can make a lot of use of them, once they learn how to use them. Talking about changing people's lives is a big statement, but certainly electronic spreadsheets have made an impact. (MORE)

Short Answer: It is fair to say that a light microscope and an electron microscope use the same principles, but the technical details are enormously different. The similar principles mean that both enlarge images of small object and have a lensing system to put an illuminating beam on a sample… and another system to carry out the refocusing of the scattered beam into an enlarged image to be viewed. Beam: An electron microscope uses an electron beam to illuminate a specimen and produce the image. An optical or light microscope uses a light beam to illuminate a specimen and produce the image. Lenses: Lenses in an optical microscope are glass, though special types of glass improve performance, it is fundamentally the same material as common glass. Electron microscopes employ magnetic fields and electron fields to guide and focus the electron beam. Electron microscope this do not have physical lenses. Resolution: Electron microscopes have much better resolution and are capable of much higher magnification than light microscopes because the wavelength of the electrons is thousands of times smaller than the wavelength of light. Light microscopes can typically resolve structures to a fraction of a micron compared to electron microscopes which in practice achieve resolutions of a few nanometers. Practically, electron microscope can have almost a thousand times greater resolution than an optical microscope. Magnification: The useful magnification of an electron microscope is also in the range of a thousand times greater than an optical microscope. Samples: Optical microscopes can view basically anything that one can put under the objective, though special dyes are often used to enhance features of the sample. Electron microscopes typically require the sample to be in a vacuum so the electrons are not scattered by air. Samples frequently require special treatment with a metal coating such as gold because the high energy electrons are not strongly scattered by small atoms such as carbon, oxygen and nitrogen that are common to biological samples. The actual performance of any microscope depends on its design and lensing system and so significant variation exists in the above practical characteristics and performance of both types of microscopes can be enhanced in various ways. More Specifics: Electron microscopes use electrons to illuminate and form an image of a sample and light microscopes use light to illuminate and form an image of a sample. A microscope of either type is characterized by its magnification and resolving power. The magnification depends on the lensing system and can be increased to any degree, but the maximum useful magnification is limited by the resolving power. The resolving power of a microscope can not be better than the limits placed on it by the size of the wavelength of the illuminating beam. The smaller the wavelength, the smaller the structures that can be resolved in them image. Visible wavelengths of light are a few hundred nanometers. An electron microscope operates with electrons accelerated to a few hundred thousand electron volts of energy and with a wavelength in the range of few hundredths of an Angstrom. An electron microscope has a theoretical resolving power that is much greater than a light microscope and can reveal smaller structures because the electrons used have wavelengths (few hundredths of Angstroms) almost 100,000 times shorter than visible light (few hundred nanometers). An optimized electron microscope can achieve a practical resolution of a few Angstroms and a useful magnifications in the millions of times. A good light microscope can resolve structures smaller than a micron but is limited to about a few hundred nanometers resolution. The useful magnification of a light microscope is not much more than a thousand times. The electron microscope uses electrostatic and electromagnetic fields to act as lenses to control and focus the electron beam and to form an image. An optical or light microscope employs glass lenses. (MORE)
It offers people the freedom to travel places further than they normally could. Also it would get them to places quicker than on foot, or by horse. Simple as that.
So that a higher magnification range could be reached and more could be found out about things such as cells and micro-organisms.
Well , it helped because it got them to be looking closly at the cell and what exactly/how exactly it got damaged and helped them figure out a way to repair it.Hope that helped,because i am not ABSOLUTLEY sure of that :)Buh-ByePoppy
Short Answer: A basic compound microscope has two lenses, one located near the specimen called the objective and a second located at the observation point that is called the eyepiece or ocular. Modern compound light microscopes can have a number of lenses and complex optics including multiples… lenses in the eyepiece. Explanation: A single lens is enough to magnify a subject and that is a simple magnifying glass. To magnify an object a great amount with a single lens introduces distortions of various sorts which are much reduced by an appropriate combination of two lenses. As a result, greater magnification with image clarity can be achieved. The objective lens performs the task of collecting a great deal of light from the subject and does most of the magnification of the subject and the eyepiece adjusts the focus of the resulting light so the observer's eye can process the image. All modern compound microscopes have an eyepiece containing more than one lens providing additional image quality and magnification. There are many variations on the basic design that have evolved since its invention 400 years ago. (MORE)

Well, first, humans used to think all these crazy ideas about life because they did not know anything about cells, molecules, atoms, or anything else beyond the naked eye. Once the first microscope was invented, we could see cells and everything else unseen before, because it was so tiny. Then, scie…ntists knew that cells are basic building blocks of life. They found out, eventually, that cell does its job alone, a tissue is made up of a group of cells working together, an organ (not the instrument) is made up of tissues working together, and an organ system is all the organs in one system preforming different jobs to accomplish on big job. Scientists also found out that cells have different parts, like the nucleus, cell membrane, organelles, and mitochondria. This turned out to be pretty big. There are eukaryote cells and prokaryote cells. There are single celled organisms and there are multicellular organisms. This all lead to the understanding of what's living and non-living, other than "OH! It's alive, IT MOVES!" All living things have cells. The cells must do four things in order to survive: Make nutrients/food, Mitosis, Exchange with the environment, and Respond to the environment (and of course get rid of waste. That kinda goes with Exchange). All of THAT all leads to even more things. Hope it was helpful. (MORE)

Factories were able to change people's lives by making products faster and cheaper. When products are able to be made faster and cheaper, the cost of the products tends to drop and more people can afford to buy them. This meant people had more access to food, clothing, and technology.
People who see change in life can plan ahead, and put flexiblestructures in place to accommodate the change when it finallyoccurs.
An optical microscope of any type uses the light passing through glass lenses. A compound microscope is simply one that uses 2 or more lenses in series. The image is formed normally either in the observer's eye or in a camera fitted to the instrument, or in certain types may be projected onto a scre…en. An electron microscope passes a finely-focussed beam of electrons through the sample, and creates the resulting image on a photographic film or electronic detectors. The instrument is used to resolve objects that are far smaller than are possible with optical microscopes. (MORE)
