0.56 mm. because total field of view on medium power is 1.7 mm. divide this with 3 and you get 0.56.
Depending on how many cells there are in the field of view. On medium power, you may not be able to see any.
At low power on the compound microscope, the diameter of the field of view is 4 millimeters. This is reduced to 1.7 millimeters when you switch to medium power
At low power on the compound microscope, the diameter of the field of view is 4 millimeters. This is reduced to 1.7 millimeters when you switch to medium power and further reduced to 0.4 millimeters when you switch to high power. Covert the measurment for the field of view from millimeters to microns, the conventional unit of measurment in microscopy. There are 1000 microns in one millimeter. Low power: 4mm= 4,000um Medium power: 1.7mm= 1,700um High power: 0.4mm= 400um
The field of view is inversely related to the magnification power...the greater the magnification, the smaller the field of view
There is a relationship between the power of an objective lens and its field of view. As the power of the objective lens increases, the size of its field of view decreases
It varies based on the microscope but is usually 4.5mm at 40X (low power), 1.8mm at 100X (medium power), 0.45mm at 400X(high power), and 0.18mm at 1000X.
The field of view becomes narrower.
It is the area that you see when looking through the microscope. The field of view depends on the strength of magnification. The lower the power the larger the field of view.
If you are using a low power lense then your field of view is bigger than with a high power lense.
The High powered field of view is harder to measure.
At a higher power the field of view is smaller and the object may no longer be in the field of view. Or it may have gone out of focus.
the view will be brighter under low power magnification...
under low power,field of view is much bigger but not as much detail because the Field of view is inversely proportional to the Magnification of the lens!
Going to high power on a microscope decreases the area of the field of view. The field of view is inversely proportional to the magnification of the objective lens. ... The specimen appears larger with a higher magnification because a smaller area of the object is spread out to cover the field of view of your eye
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT THAT THE IMAGE IS CENTERED IN THE FIELD OF VIEW BEFORE SWITCHING TO A HIGHER POWER
Larger because you have less magnification. The higher the magnification the smaller the field of view.
Because the field of view in high power is smaller than on low power and if the specimen is not in the center it will most likely be out of the field of view when the power is switched.
The field of view DIMS as you go to a higher power -- here's a basic explanation: Each time you increase the "power" of a microscope, you are looking at a smaller and smaller area. The LIGHT from this area gets evenly divided across your entire field of view -- so you are actually seeing less area and therefore, less light in your field of view.
