Section 3 Cell Structure and Membranes

Light Microscopes 

  • They use light 
  • They have lower resolution than elcectron microscopes 
  • They have maximum resolution of about 0.2 mircometres (um) 
  • The maximum useful magnification of a light mircoscope is about x1500

Magnification Equation:  

Magnification = length of image/length of speciman

AMAZING!! Thankyou so much this is so good. Good detail, good notes, and good presentation. Helped me so much.

However can you make sure all the info is true cause of the new GCSEs I dont wanna learn old info which is now incorrect. Other than that, Thankyou!
