  • B1.1 The World of the Microscope
    • Light Microscopes
      • Low Magnification
      • Can be used anywhere
      • Observe live specimens
      • Cheap
      • Magnify up to x2000 and have a resolving power of about 200nm
    • Electron Microscopes
      • Higher Magnification
      • Finer Detail
      • Large
      • Expensive
      • Kept in special conditions
      • Magnify up to about x2,000,000 and have a resolving power of around 0.2nm
    • Magnification =size of image/size of real object
    • Magnification
      • 1km = 1000m
      • 1m = 100cm
      • 1cm = 10mm
      • 1mm = 1000um (micrometers)
      • 1um = 100nm (nanometers)
