2. What is the definition of field of view? The area you see in the circle 3. What happens to the size of the field of view as you increase magnification? The specimen will appear larger because of the smaller area of view 4. Under which objective is the field of view the largest? 40 x (or 4x10) Resolving Power Resolving power is the ability to distinguish between two separate points that are very close together. 1. Make a dry mount using a square of solid color from a colored picture. a. What color is your square? Purple 2. Observe the slide under low, medium, and high powers. a. How is the color distributed? The color becomes darker the higher the power/lens b. What colors do you see? High – grey, medium – dark purple, low – bright purple c. Which resolving power is greater, the human eye’s or the microscope’s? Microscopes power is greater d. How do you know? Under a microscope you can see things the human eye could never fathom to see. Depth of Field Remember that specimens have depth (thickness) and are not flat, and the whole specimen is not in one plane (on one level). The microscope only focuses on one level at a time, so you will only be able to focus on one part of the specimen at a time. 1. Make another dry mount slide using newsprint with multiple colors slide under low power. Focus directly on the point where the hairs cross. Make certain that the “X” of the hairs is directly in the center of your field of view. a. Are both hairs in focus under low power? Yes 2. Switch to medium power, focus making certain that the “X” of the hairs is directly in the center of your field of view. Created by: Diane Gibson

3. Switch to high power. Once again focus making certain that the “X” of the hairs is directly in the center of your field of view. a. Are both hairs in focus under high power? No Why not? The microscope is only able to focus on one hair at a time Draw the hairs as viewed under high power in color. 1. Place a drop of pond water in the middle of your slide.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
