Studying

  • Microscopes let us see things that the naked eye won't let us. The techniques have developed with knowledge and technology.
  • Light microscopes use light and lenses to form and magnify an image.
  • Electron microscopes use electrons to form an image. They have higher magnification than light microscopes and higher resolution.
  • Resolution is the ability to distinguish between two points so a higher resolution gives a sharper image,
  • Electron microscopes lets us see way smaller things im more detail, like the internal structure of mitochondria and chloroplasts. And even tinier things like ribsomes and plasmids.

Magnification

Magnification;

Magnification= image size

                        real size

Image size and real size should have the same units, if they don't you'll have to convert them both first.
