The 'magnification' of the microscope is how far or close you zoom in to the picture. The larger the magnification, the closer you can see what you are looking at through the microscope.

total magnification=(magnification by ocular lens) multiply (magnification of objective lens)

The magnification of the eyepiece multiply by the magnification of the objective.

Total magnification = magnification of eyepiece x magnification of objective lens

To determine the magnification of the eyepiece on a microscope take the total magnification for the microscope and divide it by the total magnification of the objective lens. The answer is what the magnification is for the eyepiece.

To quote Wikipedia; "The angular magnification is given by : :: : where Mo is the magnification of the objective and Me the magnification of the eyepiece." So 10x X 20x = 200x

Multiply the magnification of the eyepiece lens times the magnification of the objective lens. For example, if the eyepiece has a 10x magnification and the eyepiece has a 40x magnification, then the total magnification is 400x.

the act of expanding something in apparent size i suggest typing "definition (magnification, or whichever word you need)" into google, or dictionary.com for definitions.

You multiply the eyepiece magnification by the objective magnification. For example if the eyepiece magnification is 10X and the objective magnification is 40X the total magnification would be 10 X 40 = 400X

LPO has a 10x magnification. HPO has a 40x magnification. OIO has a 100x magnification. LPO has the least magnification, and OIO has the largest.

When a microscope is parfocal it will stay in focus when the magnification is changed.

If you mean 3-9x40 then it is for rifle scopes which means that it has adjustable zoom from 3 times magnification to 9 times magnification. The 40 part means that the lens at the end has a diameter of 40mm.

low power is 40x magnification, medium power is 100x magnification, high dry is 400x magnification, and oil immerson is 1000x magnification.

The total magnification of a compound light microscope is determined by multiplying the ocular lens (eyepiece) magnification times the objective lens magnification. So (10x)(45x) = 450x magnification.

User Avatar

The total magnification is the object magnification for example 4x,10x etc. times eyepiece magnification usually 10x and you get the total magnification. The objective lens magnification is the lens right above the slide usually 4x,10x etc.

Total magnification means enlarging something in terms of appearance to the full extent. This is the measure of how many times bigger something can get compared to actual size.

User Avatar

you multiply the magnification of the lense (usually x10) by the magnification of the settting.

User Avatar

When using a common light microscope - simply multiply the eyepiece magnification and the objective magnification. For example, if the eyepiece magnification is 10X and the objective magnification is 40X, the total magnification will be 10 X 40 = 400X.

User Avatar

low-power magnificatin = (10x)(4x) = 40x high-power magnification = (10x)(40x) = 400x It depends on what magnification you are looking for; high-power magnification OR low-power magnification.

User Avatar

To work out the total magnification, you multiply the eyepiece magnification with the objective lens magnification. In this case the total magnification is 400X (10 X 40 = 400X).

Because the Occular lense is 10x magnification and the largest objective lense is 150x magnification. 10x * 150x = 1500x magnification
