In light microscopes, light passes through a specimen and then through magnifying lenses so the object can be seen much bigger.

Microscopes are used to learn about the structure and function of cells, of which organisms are made.

Plant and animal cells have in common:

  • Cell membrane - separates the contents of theh cells and its surroundings. It controls the movement of substances like oxygen, glucose and carbon dioxide into and out the cell
  • Cytoplasm - where many of the chemical reactions needed to carry out
