Field of view is how much of your specimen or object you will be able to see through the microscope. At 40x magnification you will be able to see 5mm. At 100x magnification you will be able to see 2mm. At 400x magnification you will be able to see 0.45mm, or 450 microns.
Besides, how do you calculate the field diameter of a microscope?
To calculate the magnification, simply multiply the ocular lens (10x) by the objective lens. With this microscope you can obtain four different magnifications: 40x, 100x, 400x and 1000x. The original diameters of field of view (fov) were determined with a transparent mm ruler.
What does diameter of the field mean?
In fiber optics, the mode field diameter (MFD) is an expression of distribution of the irradiance, i.e., the optical power per unit area, across the end face of a single-mode fiber.
What is the total magnification at 4x 10x and 40x?
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.
