348 CHAPTER 25 25.22 (a) The lateral magnification produced by the objective lens of a good compound microscope is closely approximated by 1 O ML f ≈ − , where L is the length of the microscope tube and is the focal length of this lens. Thus, if and O f 20.0 cm L = 1 50.0 M =− (inverted image), the focal length of the objective lens is 1 20.0 0.400 cm 50 = + cm .0 O L f M ≈− (b) When the compound microscope is adjusted for most comfortable viewing (with parallel rays entering the relaxed eye), the angular magnification produced by the eyepiece lens is 25 cm ee mf = .
