As the power of the objective lens increases, the working distance decreases. This objective lens provides the highest magnification = Oil immersion This objective lens provides the second highest magnification = High-dry This objective lens provides the lowest magnification = = Low power This objective lens has the shortest working distance = = Oil immersion The coarse focus knob should be adjusted only when using this objective lens = = Low power This lens collects an focuses light from the lamp on to the specimen = = Condenser This lens, also known as eye piece, often comes in pairs = = Ocular Diopter adjustments can be made to this lens = = Ocular A diaphragm is used to regulate light passing through this lens = = Condenser T or F:Acetone is the safest solvent for cleaning an objective lens: False T or F:Only lint-free optically safe soft tissue should be used to wipe off the microscope lenses: True T or F:The total magnification capability of the light microscope is only limited by the magnifying power of the lens system: False T or F:The coarse focus knob can be used to adjust the focus when using any of the objective lenses

False T or F:Once the focus is achieved at one magnification, a higher-power objective lens can be rotated into position without fear of striking the slide: True The resolving power of a microscope is a function of the numerical aperture of the lenses, and the wavelength of light. The coarse and fine focus knobs adjust the distance between the stage and the objective lens. The microscope that maintains the focus when the objective magnification is increased is called parfocal The total magnification achieved when using a 100x oil immersion lens is 10x binocular eyepieces is 1000x The most useful adjustment for increasing image contrast in low power magnification is closing down the diaphragm Before the oil immersion lens is rotated into place, you should lower the stage with use of the coarse focus adjustment knob, and place a drop of oil on the slide . In what way do the microscopic features of bacterial colonies differ from that of fungi?

    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.
