Unformatted text preview: Will this omission affect the magnification of your specimen? Will it affect the resolution of your specimen? Why or why not? (2) Magnification will not be affected, but resolution will be improved and optimized by using the appropriate immersion oil. That is, the value of (n) x (sin ) = N.A. will increase. 4. What specific feature of electron microscopy (EM) provides for increased magnification and resolution compared to light microscopy? (2) In electron microscopy high energy, short wavelength electrons are used to create an image, whereas in light microscopy. The longer wavelengths of visible light photons limits the resolution and the effective magnification. Demo...
