Conditions of Use
For the past few weeks our science class has been using microscopes, when using a microscope you have a focal plane which is the space you can see through the microscope lens to observe the slide, when you are observing the slide you have to focus the lens so you can see it clearly through microscope no matter what magnification.
When you magnify something you must always remember that every number on the microscope is times' by ten, for example 10x would be 100 times magnification on a microscope.
When observing a slide there are two different kind of mounts you can make on a slide. A wet mount and a dry mount.
A dry mount is when the slide has no water on it, a wet mount is when the slide has water on it.
Another thing you must always remember is when you move something under the microscope it always goes the opposite of the direction you move it.
And that is how you operate a microscope well.
