Because it is not too zoomed in so aligning the slide and lens is easier Explain why this statement is right or wrong. (Yes, make a decision and defend your choice.) You only use the coarse focus knob when you have the 4X scanning objective in place. ” Because it has the lowest power and it is easier to locate the specimen on the slide than if I start with a higher power. Using the lowest magnification means that the specimen is far enough away from the lens in comparison to the higher magnification lenses, offering the widest field of visible range. Assuming the light is on and the oculars are in place, what are the next 2 steps? 1. Open the spring loaded clip and fit the slide into the corners of the slide holder then release the clip 2. Turn the ocular housing to select the lens Describe what to do if more light is needed to view the specimen. Use the condenser diaphragm to reduce the amount of light and increase the contrast of the image. The light intensity decreases as magnification increases. There is a fixed amount of light per area. Image brightness is inversely proportional to the magnification squared. CHECKPOINT: Click on “Try This” to test your microscope skills. Do P1 through P6.
