# How do you calculate the total magnification?

To figure the total magnification of an image that you are viewing through the microscope is really quite simple. To get the total magnification take the power of the objective (4X, 10X, 40x) and multiply by the power of the eyepiece, usually 10X.

Regarding this, what is 100x magnification?

The eyepiece produces a power of 10x and the objective lens can produce various different powers, so if it were to produce a power of 100x, the final magnification would be 1000x (10 x 100). So this would mean that to the naked eye, the image would appear 1000 times larger than it actually is.

What is the total magnification of the 100x oil immersion objective lens?

A microscope that maintains focus when the objective magnification is increased is called.
Parfocal.
The total magnification achieved when using a 100x oil immersion lens with 10x binocular eye pieces is.
1000x.

What is the maximum total magnification for a light microscope?

The actual power or magnification of a compound optical microscope is the product of the powers of the ocular (eyepiece) and the objective lens. The maximum normal magnifications of the ocular and objective are 10× and 100× respectively, giving a final magnification of 1,000×.
