False; special lens tissue
The microscope should be stored with oil immersion lens in position over stage
False ; scanning
When beginning to focus, use the lowest power lens.
When focusing, always focus toward the specimen.
False; away so slide doesn't break
A coverslip should always be used with wet mounts and the high power oil lenses.
Platform on which the slide rests for viewing
Used to increase the amount of light passing through the specimen
Secures the slide to the stage
Delivers a concentrated beam of light to the specimen
Used for precise focusing once initial focusing has been done
Fine Adjustment Knob
Carries the Objective lenses
Real image is magnified by the Occular to produce ______ for eye
Ability to discriminate between 2 close objects as separate
Distance from bottom of objective lens in use to the specimen is called
Object on left side, want to bring it to center (right)....what direction would you move slide?
The area of the specimen seen when looking through the microscope
Why should light be dimmed when looking at living cells?
For more contrast
So light doesn't kill the cells
Only the FAK needs to be used to focus at higher powers after focusing at low powers
Higher Magnification, Resolution
Higher Magnification, working distance
Higher Magnification, Amount of Light needed
Higher Magnification, Depth of Field
