The most obvious difference between a low power and a high power microscope is that a high power microscope can resolve smaller features, which is usually achieved with objective lenses of greater magnification.
Keeping this in consideration, which objective lens should you start with and why?
ALWAYS use both hands when picking the microscope up and moving it from one place to another. 3. When focusing on a slide, ALWAYS start with either the 4X or 10X objective. Once you have the object in focus, then switch to the next higher power objective.
What is the magnifying power of the low power objective 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.
Which objective lens would have the greatest working distance?
