Generally speaking the ocular lens magnifies 10x. Determine the

**magnification**capacity of the objective lens. To**calculate**the total**magnification**of the compound light**microscope**multiply the**magnification power**of the ocular lens by the**power**of the objective lens.So, what is the total magnification of the microscope is on low power?

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**.What is the magnification of the low power lens?

The magnification of the ocular lens of a microscope is

**x10**and the magnification of the objective lens for low, medium, and high power are**4X**,**10X**, and**40X**, respectively. The measured dFOV under medium power is 2.6mm.What is the total magnification of the low power objective?

Objective Lenses: Usually you will find 3 or 4 objective lenses on a microscope. They almost always consist of

**4x**,**10x**,**40x**and**100x**powers. When coupled with a**10x**(most common) eyepiece lens, total magnification is**40x**(**4x**times**10x**),**100x**,**400x**and 1000x.
