Reached when image becomes blurry Resolution- clarity of the image The average plant or animal cell is 10µm-100µm 1000µm=1mm µ- “micron” µm- “micrometer” human eye resolution is 100µm Light microscope: Uses light beam and glass 0.2µm Allows you to see basic cell and larger cell parts Electron microscope Uses beam of electrons and electro magnetic field
